asked for ideas for Apps everyone uses to teach reading. I teach older students who, if they still cannot read functionally or independently, by the time I can interact with them are not wanting the stigma or extra work. This does not stop me looking for ways to make them more independent or to keep eye ear out for things which work for Elementary/ early Middle then adapt.
I don’t blog, am seriously private but wanted a way to share and perhaps we can keep adding in a Google Drive document? If that is possible.
I asked Diana about the target audience and categories for the apps:
1. Pre readers
2. Early readers
3. Emerging readers
4. younger teens
6. learning a new language
Elements I look out for with Apps, software, assistive tech:
letters / letter sound correspondence
brain storming, mind-mapping, tools for frameworks
Frameworks for different genres
frameworks for sequencing
tools to encourage publishing to an audience (beside blogging of course)
tools to incorporate visuals
tools for text to,speech
tools for speech to text
I am working in English, but want other to add resources for additional languages.
i am interested in bi or tri lingual resources and for resources in living Australian Aboriginal languages
This would be a great resource Diana has prompted.
What a brilliant idea.
this is a draft.
will use these headings for the list I will make in GDrive.
