Technology changes everything

 

Let's just get this out of the way first.

Technology cannot and does not replace great teaching. It is, however, very much a part of how we teach. For students with language based learning differences, a vast wealth of information is mostly inaccessible simply because it's presented as written text. The issue for these students isn't their capability to learn, rather, the challenge significantly lies in decoding written text. Studies show that most of these students have average to above average IQ. So if technology can present that same information but in a way that allows them to consume information more easily, then our task is to equip them with the knowledge of how to use technology as a tool in working around their differences. 

That's where we begin.

 

We all need reminders
