Problem: Many special education students I teach struggle with reading because they have language based disabilities. A combination of factors cause them to disengage and give up when they struggle with reading. Their struggles are further amplified by consistent low test scores that attempt to show reading achievement, but often neglect to show reading improvement. As a result, struggling readers end up discouraged.
Abstract: Using iPads to create digital portfolios allows students a platform to creatively demonstrate their learning through performance assessments, while giving teachers a tool to uniquely track student student growth and progress of IEP goals.
