This application is great for children of all ages.  It manages the kid's reading level and stores the books all in one app.  This is helpful for the kid who is always forgetting where they left their book!

An interesting search engine directly used for educational purposes. It creates a mediated yet reciprocial intimacy between students and teachers outside the classroom environment. I'm quite fascinated with how students can engage in different lessons or levels according to the different teaching they would prefer.:) But alas! It would take quite a while before it kicks off here.

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL–”Fantastic!” | Hot Technology Tools for all Learners | Scoop.it

 

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison
