Teachers learn how to teach reading and writing, but no one tells them what to do when their students aren’t learning as expected. Technology is just beginning to find ways to individualize reading and writing support, but how do you identify which apps best suit a particular student’s needs? You will leave this workshop with a framework for identifying the strengths and weaknesses in reading and writing for any student and apps to help boost their weaker areas.


I used slideshare to host the slides. Here's the link:
