I'm currently working on a project involving a school that specializes in working with kids who have dyslexia. My goal is to provide them with a list of high quality resources related to special education and ed tech. This list is not intended to be comprehensive as I think that might be a bit overwhelming for a school that is just attempting to realize the full potential of ed tech in their classrooms.
Right now, I'm particularly interested in the following:
- Accessibility features and tips/tricks for Macs, iPads and Chromebooks
- Case studies or articles that tell stories of how ed tech benefits special needs students, particularly those with dyslexia
- Names and Twitter IDs of thought leaders and practitioners in related fields to special education (would be great to find a couple of Twitter lists [see an example] as these lists make it easy to follow a bunch of people at once)
- Names of organizations that provide resources and information around special education
Here is the link to the multi-tabbed Google Spreadsheet that I've started; it is completely open and editable by anyone, so feel free to add anything that you think is outstanding. Look at the bottom of the spreadsheet to see the different categories by tab.
If you want to leave your name and/or Twitter handle for others to follow you, feel free to do so on the contributors tab. You are also welcome to refer to this list and copy it to your own Drive if you'd like to use this for future reference.
