the stories are so helpful! always great to hear and learn from the teacher experiences :-)

09:34 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Q3: What are some examples of assistive technology and why are assistive technologies important for students with learning disabilities?

09:48 - Peggy George
yes Maureen! Karen Jankowski is an outstanding leader with UDL! She did a great webinar for us awhile back :-)

10:23 - @bcdtech Maureen
too many districts don't use SETT to figure out what to use or don't consider kid preferences

11:29 - stidmama
I used live scribe for my master's....

11:45 - Peggy George
audio notetaker :-) https://www.sonocent.com/en-us/audio-notetaker

12:06 - Terri Gogola 1
I bought one for my ADD husband for his sales meetings.

12:12 - Peggy George
I have a Livescribe pen and it is amazing for taking notes and converting them to digital text :-)

12:13 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Q4: In your book you say “t’ not about the tech, but for some students it is.”ell us more about that. How do you as a teacher decide when to use tech and when not to use it?

12:23 - @bcdtech Maureen
I have several livescribe pens and love them. The one that supposedly transcribes did not work for me at all... but the others- echo and sky worked really well

12:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
Tech can be the hook to get the student excited about learning

13:13 - Peggy George
finding that match is so important! what does the student really need?

13:41 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Q5: What tools do you use with LD students to support reading and writing?

14:18 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Yes

14:21 - Peggy George
yes seeing it great Billy

14:22 - @bcdtech Maureen
Read and Write for Google rocks! Best tool in the world. Free for teachers- $$ for kids, but my district has it now for all students- really cheap

Yes, love ReadWorks.org

15:36 - Terri Gogola 1
Our district is looking to make a new AT assessment of needs. Does anyone have one we could look at?

15:54 - @bcdtech Maureen
DIscover kids has different levels too- not free... but has monthly free stuff

16:09 - stidmama
newsela is an expensive one to get the most useful features

16:29 - @bcdtech Maureen

Q9: Teachers often feel overwhelmed with all of the new tech tools and don’ feel they have time to learn how to use them. What are some good ways teachers can learn about tech tools that will support student learning and how do they pick the right tool?

25:45 - @bcdtech Maureen
Qiat list serve is really good if you have questions

25:48 - Peggy George

27:51 - Peggy George

28:23 - Peggy George
a little bit of bandwidth lag right now for some reason

28:44 - stidmama
the UDL site looks good, too bad so many of the lessons are for smart boards

28:49 - @bcdtech Maureen

Siri is fabulous!

34:44 - @bcdtech Maureen
speak it google chrome extension can read to you too

34:59 - Peggy George
I had no idea you could do all of those things with Siri until I read their book!!! Much more than just asking it questions!

35:00 - Sharon Gullett 1
Online World Book and Britannica has a voice option too

35:02 - Sylvianne LH
Dragon app is great or Dragon naturally speaking or PC

35:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
Can you tell I like Google chrome?

amen about too much testing!!!

37:02 - Peggy George
This is an amazing tool! https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/speakit/pgeolalilifpodheeocdmbhehgnkkbak?hl=en-US (SpeakIt extension)

37:19 - stidmama
Because the tests do not demonstrate student growth (only whether they can perform at a predetermined level), students who read at a level below expected are disadvantaged on the tests.

37:22 - NinaPeery
I love this answer! Giving grades is teaching our students to think that failing is bad.

37:25 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- heading up to Troy next week to learn more about Snap and Read - I think it will be a game changer for some of the middle/ HS kids if I can convince admin to buy it

37:40 - Peggy George
lucky you Maureen!

38:03 - Eileen
We feel the testing results are viewed as our report cards...Sad.

38:48 - Peggy George
yes Eileen! so sad!!!

38:49 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Maybe some day people at the state/federal level will understand the impact of testing and what assessment is best for students.

39:06 - Terri Gogola 1
Data needs to be given back to the educators to drive education...not evaluations!!!!

39:08 - Sylvianne LH
I love using Exit Ticket http://exitticket.org/ it allows students to be set tests but grouped according to ability. Then tracks their scores. It is moving to Gooru soon, but a lovely system

39:26 - Peggy George
great suggestion Sylvianne!!! thanks!

39:34 - @bcdtech Maureen
Billy- do you/did you use UPar for reading assessment?

40:15 - Peggy George
you don't have to be an expert on the tools to use them! let the students take the lead and you can learn them together :-)

40:24 - stidmama
Thanks for the great ideas. I am loading the book onto my Kindle right now!

40:40 - @bcdtech Maureen
Do you have any wonderful resources for written expression for kids who have disabilities/

40:41 - Billy (@wkrakower)
Nope we use DRA and as of today not using online/tech for reading but might be using STAR 360

40:56 - Eileen
Now I am seeing more students in gifted with reading disabilities. Thank you for the websites I may try to use to support these students.

41:03 - Peggy George

41:43 - @bcdtech Maureen
It's a protocol to test to see if the kids can benefit from tech...

41:50 - @bcdtech Maureen

Q4: In your book you say “t’ not about the tech, but for some students it is.”ell us more about that. How do you as a teacher decide when to use tech and when not to use it?

12:23 to: @bcdtech Maureen
I have several livescribe pens and love them. The one that supposedly transcribes did not work for me at all... but the others- echo and sky worked really well

Because the tests do not demonstrate student growth (only whether they can perform at a predetermined level), students who read at a level below expected are disadvantaged on the tests.

37:22 to: NinaPeery
I love this answer! Giving grades is teaching our students to think that failing is bad.

37:25 to: @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- heading up to Troy next week to learn more about Snap and Read - I think it will be a game changer for some of the middle/ HS kids if I can convince admin to buy it

Maybe some day people at the state/federal level will understand the impact of testing and what assessment is best for students.

39:06 to: Terri Gogola 1
Data needs to be given back to the educators to drive education...not evaluations!!!!

39:08 to: Sylvianne LH
I love using Exit Ticket http://exitticket.org/ it allows students to be set tests but grouped according to ability. Then tracks their scores. It is moving to Gooru soon, but a lovely system

great suggestion Sylvianne!!! thanks!

39:34 to: @bcdtech Maureen
Billy- do you/did you use UPar for reading assessment?
