Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 3, 2015 12:53 PM

Bubbl.us made this list and I think it can be a great educational tool! Mind mapping helps learners to organize information more clearly, and clearly organized content is essential to retaining  information. There are other interesting tools here as well.

Glenda's Assistive Tech Information & more: Reading with Older Students | technology | Scoop.it

"Do you read aloud to your students? Is there ever a time when students are too old to be read to? Many teachers are firm believers in reading aloud -- even at the upper grade levels."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 21, 2013 11:57 PM

This post describes why it is valuable to read to older students as well as a wide variety of resources. There are many reasons to continue to read to older students (and not just those students whom have access to assistive technology). A few of those reasons are below.

* "Reading aloud to children helps them develop and improve literacy skills -- reading, writing, speaking, and listening..."

* "...children listen on a higher level than they read, listening to other readers stimulates growth and understanding of vocabulary and language patterns."

Resources are available in two categories:

* Beyond Instruction that includes a link to a post of Audio books and publications, Information on optical character recognition,Text-to-speech and Variable speed tape recorders

Sites to explore includes links to about 10 websites. Some are free and some will cost.

Adrianna Castelo's curator insight, February 19, 2014 11:13 PM

I thought that this was quite interesting because you never early think to read to students as they get older. It has always been pretty routine that when you learn how to read you do it yourself.For myself, having something read out loud to me is not the best. I never pay attention when it's being read aloud only when I read it for myself. However, it could be beneficial to other students who really do have learning disabilities without them knowing.
