I love Bookshare, but I will admit that it takes a little work to learn how to use it. That said, it is WELL worth the effort and will make you wonder how your students ever read without it! I was happy to learn today that they now offer an option for web reading without an individual membership and wanted to share this link with you for learning more. Previously, students needed an individual subscription and password to log in outside of the school’s account. Now the teacher can assign a specific log in for them, download books for the student, and assign them to a shared reading list to allow student access from the internet anywhere. Wow. It just keeps getting easier!
Wow! We’ve been out of school here in east Tennessee for 2 full weeks due to “snowmageddon 2015”. I missed seeing my students while trapped at home under ice and snow, but it gave me a lot of time to create new curriculum materials using visual supports. Take a look at our ready-to-print thematic project titled “Let’s Build a Snowman’ in case you need something to tie in with our recent weather events. Of course, now I am working on projects for Easter and spring in hopes that we can wish the cold weather away!
While working on my projects, I realized that I’d never shared the Boardmaker Help & Training Center site created by Mayer-Johnson/Dynavox. An excellent resource, it contains tips, guides, and short video tutorials to help when learning to create with Boardmaker products. It’s easy to navigate and offers a host of supports. Check it out today!
