Cheating, Or? Reading & Writing in the Digital Age

Mar 9, 2022

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

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.
