10 Apps for Learners Who Struggle with Reading and Writing | Free Resources from the Net for EVERY Learner | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

Despite the growing use of multimedia in classrooms, schools remain primarily text oriented. This is a major problem for significant numbers of learners who struggle with text. No matter how capable they may be in other respects, these students are not “academically” oriented in the ways that tend to matter most in the classroom.

Flipping out? What you need to know about the Flipped Classroom | Inside Higher Ed | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it
