EdTech Roundup

The Ed Tech Round Up

Michael Karlin, editor of The EdTech Roundup says, “I’m a big fan of Learning Ally. The nonprofit offers an incredibly beneficial service not only for students with special needs and disabilities, but for any student needing additional support with reading. The overall design and mobile app interface is easy to use. I especially love the ability to track notes and bookmarks across a student’s entire library. It’s great that teachers are able to monitor student notes and progress. I am happy to see the inclusion of online PD. If you are looking for a tool to help struggling readers, including ELL, I absolutely recommend that you call to schedule a demo of Learning Ally.” Top 10 Educational Websites 2018 Top 10 Educational Websites 2018
