Reading Apps – Support for Students with LD

Reading Apps – Support for Students with LD | Google+ for Educators | Scoop.it

Are your ready to level the playing field for students this year?  What’s available or new in reading apps for iOS devices?

 

Check out the reviews from OT's with Apps!

 

"With hundreds of new apps released everyday fortunately some of them are targeted for individuals with special needs. It has been about 2 years since the first debut of the iPad and it appears as though apps are more robust now than ever, doing more and having more features for individuals with disabilities. So it goes with reading apps, but can they compete with Kurzweil, Read & Write or ClaroRead? No, but there are more and more available to help print disabled access print. Here are some reading apps for iDevices with good quality voices(s) and highlighting of spoken works that supply reading solutions for student or adults who struggle with reading (and some help with writing):"

 

> Read2Go ($19.99)

> ClaroSpeak US Edition ($5.99)

> AppWriter US ($19.99)

> Voice Dream Reader ($4.99)

> Speak it! (free)

> Firefly app (free with Kurzweil web-license)

Google Plus:  Is This the Social Tool Schools Have Been Waiting For? | Google+ for Educators | Scoop.it
There seem to be three forces at play when it comes to education and social media. The first is a lack of force, quite frankly - the inertia that makes many educators unwilling and uninterested in integrating the technology into their classrooms.

Innovative Educator Blog: Fluency Finder App- Perfect Reading Assessment for K-8 Educators

Innovative Educator Blog: Fluency Finder App- Perfect Reading Assessment for K-8 Educators | Google+ for Educators | Scoop.it

I would like to share with you the exciting new app of Fluency Finder we utilized during an iPad Apptivity workshop in Wisconsin yesterday with K-8th grade teachers and Reading Specialist and Title I teachers. It’s a reading fluency app that will work on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, and the cost is $6.99. The grade level assessment associated with this app is focused on grades 1-5, but can easily utilized for children in kindergarten who are more fluent with reading or students through their middle school years who are struggling with reading. This particular app allows you to assess the reading fluency of each child in your classroom and store the data assessments, so you can refer back to them for future comparisons of analyzing fluency growths or setbacks.The Fluency finder app stores all the information locally on your mobile device and the reading passages.

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Blog - The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Blog - The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | Google+ for Educators | Scoop.it

"The Technology Enhanced Learning Research Group, lead by Kevin Burden from the University of Hull, investigated the use of iPads at eight different schools in Scotland. The study took place between March and summer 2012 and analysis was completed in October 2012.

The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy. Best of all, ownership encourages students to take more responsibility for their learning."
