TODD’S TECH TUESDAY: Read the words provides free support to students with reading difficulties. Voices are clear and graphics are impressive (better than many other programs). You could use this tech tool to upload a learner’s homework and transfer it to her iPod. Or use it as a tool in writing workshop; the novelty of hearing work read on screen will inspire some students to compose longer phrases, sentences, or paragraphs. For more classroom ideas, see this post on Interactive Content Corner.
