Hi David and Grace. What a great week. Thank you so very much.

I'm hoping that someone caught the reference to the reading institute announcement made by one of the group facilitators at the very end of today. I didn't write down the pertinent info. Help?

Hi Maria,
I made the reference...:)..the web site to get more info is...
www.readinginstitute.net/technology.html.
The Symposium that was held in the spring was phenomenal! It is not about selling but truly about how their technology based products can support both the teacher and all learners in the classroom. LeapFrog blew me away with how they aligned their products to the academic environment vs their commercially based products. I copied and pasted the objectives of the Symposium below;
Objectives:
• Attendees will learn about the use of technology and specialized software for differentiated instruction to support all learners across the curriculum.
• Attendees will learn cost effective ways that technology can facilitate Universal Design for Learning.
• Attendees will network with publishers and other educators, therapists and assistive technology providers on the use of technology for differentiated instruction.

Hope this helps..:)
