Let's Talk About Reading...

READING & TECHNOLOGY: RESEARCH REVIEW

  • Both are best done embedded across content areas.
  • Both are primarily a means to an end, but sometimes require explicit instruction in order to be a useful “means.”
  • By adulthood, people tend not to read or use technology “for their sake.”
  • Both require multiple skills that can and should be taught explicitly, students should also use both means for diverse purposes

ACTIVITY: REWORDIFY DEMO

1. Click this link, or go to www.rewordify.com

2. When you get to the website click the "demo" button

3. You’ll see a green box appear that says, “Welcome to the demo!”

4. Use the “Next” link in the green boxes to go through the demo, step-by-step. Be sure to follow the instructions in the green boxes. Use the worksheet provided to take notes as you go

through the demo

Under-studied, but there is research to

suggest that dictation can support these

students and that there is nothing wrong or

detrimental about using these

accommodations…

(Peterson-Karlan, 2011)

Writing Fluency Options:

  • Built-in tools on all operating systems (iOS)
  • Google Docs (Voice Dictation)
  • dictation.io (Only in Chrome)
  • iPads: Dragon Dictation
  • CoWriter Universal (App and Chrome Extension)
  • WordQ

CO-WRITER UNIVERSAL (CHROME EXTENSION)

MORE CHROME EXTENSIONS

1. With a small group or individually, browse the chrome store for apps and extensions that look like they might be beneficial to use with students.


2. Be prepared to share 3 apps or extensions and how you plan on using them. (If you don't find 3 new items to share; you can share any that you already use and tell us why you love them or any of the ones we've discussed today and how you think you might use it...)

A FEW WORTH CHECKING OUT... (IN MY OPINION)

  • Skimzee
  • Beeline Reader
  • Mercury Reader
  • Snap and Read
  • Grammarly
