Cheating, Or Empowering Learners with Reading and Writing Tools In The Digital Age?

UDL Touchdown: making a play for all learners

About the session

Education remains gridlocked by myths and opposing views surrounding the use of assistive technology (AT). And while most AT tools were originally designed for students in the margins, all learners can benefit. Drawing on current research from CAST and Texthelp, we’ll challenge these myths. We’ll explore how AT supports digital reading and writing to improve comprehension and fluency, how it supports executive function, promotes a level playing field, and advances expert learning. We’ll focus on how learners can use AT to develop a better understanding of their own learning preferences in order to develop a strong voice and more effectively advocate for inclusive learning experiences for everyone.
