No matter the population of students with whom you work, follow these simple steps. Read the book. Employ the content. Observe the successes. Then share those achievements with others!"

"Through the use of stories and examples from experts in the field as well as suggestions for possible AT tools, educators will be able to successfully match the unique needs of each individual student to the features of available technology supports."

"Sharon and Billy have produced a practical and real approach to engaging students with learning disabilities. Educators will find lots of great tools, ideas, and strategies to support students with learning challenges. Sprinkled throughout the book are case studies from noted educators, which proves to be very useful when thinking through the process of integrating technology in the classroom. This is a must read!"

"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press. Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:

  • Flipped leadership
  • Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities
  • Blogging for educators
  • Best practices for establishing a makerspace
  • Tools to connect and empower teachers

Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."
