Week 5 Reflection

This week’s essential question gave me insight to what software is beneficial for my classroom/school. I learned about many different assistive technologies that I would like to try in my classroom. One in particular was the text to read. I do have the iTalk app on my ipad, however I’ve never tried it. Time is always a factor, and will always continue to be. I learned that if I incorporate some kind of AT once a week in reading, it’ll benefit my students fluency and comprehension. Another thing that holds me back from using AT is training. If we had proper training on using these apps, I believe the outcome would be greater. I do use Raz Kids and Reflex Math, both are great apps purchased by our school district.
