T10 - Technol-OGy: EdTech to Enhance Structured Literacy Instruction

Oct 25, 2018 11:15am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 12:15pm


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

Learning Objective:

  • TECHNOLOGY: Access potential applications of language-based technology for direct instruction and/or accommodation for students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
