F25 - Technol-OGy: EdTech to Enhance Structured-Literacy Instruction

Nov 10, 2017 11:15am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 12:15pm

Standard: $20.00


Historically, structured-literacy approaches have been the most effective for remediating language difficulties. The utilization of technology can make this type of instruction a multisensory process that is engaging and explicit while still maintaining the individualization and diagnostic-prescriptive aspects that are its hallmarks. In this presentation, an Orton-Gillingham Fellow and a director of technology share how they have collaborated to include technology as an instructive and assistive tool following the traditional Orton-Gillingham approach in the small classroom setting.
