The Read/Write Web

The Read/Write Web, also known as Web 2.0, offers engaging tools and strategies that improve curriculum access for students with special needs.
Using the Read/Write Web as Assistive Technology allows students to:
  • Access the curriculum using multiple methods of access and engagement
  • Demonstrate what they know independently
  • Collaborate with their peers in new ways
  • Be creators of content
  • Use the tools that they depend upon outside of the school environment
These are the resources that were highlighted at the Read/Write Web station:

Web 2.0 Wiki Resource (Highlighting Free Social Software Tools - Social Bookmarking - Delicious, Wikis, Blogs, Podcasting, & Digital Story Telling)
Free Tech Toolkit for UDL for All Classrooms (A blog post which highlights free tools for Math, Writing, Accessing Text, Study Skills, Organization and other educational areas)
