10 Tech Hacks for Struggling Readers

10 Tech Hacks for Struggling Readers | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Kids who struggle with reading get an early lesson in one of life’s more sucky realities; the earlier a person falls behind, the harder it is to even want to catch up.

 "The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives."
