Apps to Support Literacy for Struggling Readers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The iPad is a powerful tool that can support and promote literacy amongst struggling readers. There are literally thousands of apps on the app store that can support literacy. This session will help sort out the key features to look for when selecting apps for students. We will also look at various apps that support phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. Motivation to read can also be a huge issue especially amongst older students. We will discuss various ways and methods to help motivate and engage the struggling reader. There are also many apps that allow you to create your own support materials. This session will also explore accessibility features built into the iOS devices that can support the struggling reader as well as other resources that are available for use on the device.
