These technology tools are awesome! Clearly, this is not economically feasible for every student with ADHD, but maybe one day it will be! I wish I had the smartpen in high school to record lectures and presentations!

Getting started with the basics using a IWB in the classroom

Carla Laude's curator insight, February 10, 2015 10:16 PM
