Accessibility
Using Technology 
Greetings Sequoyah, 

There has been great progress in technology and accessibility as of late. When you being looking at the work of Raymond Kurzweil and his pioneering force in the area of read aloud it has been a long road to the nearly ubiquitous nature of technology integration for folks with special needs. 

The Google Tips of the Day covers Accessibility and using the computer as assistive device in a variety of situations. Take a look at https://get.google.com/tips/#!/?category=improve-access for ideas on using the computer for all our learners. 

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy

Providing Feedback
More then a Grade
Greetings Sequoyah, 

John Spencer has a good post today on providing Feedback. (http://www.spencerideas.org/2015/12/how-do-we-improve-feedback.html) As we begin to examine teaching, and learning, and testing in new and exciting ways we have to being looking a different ways to assess student achievement. Providing feedback to students is key. Even more important is the feedback they give to us. What works, why? As students begin to take ownership of their learning teaching them how to provide stimulating feedback is a great tool in our kits.

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy

Digital Footprint
Be Aware of Online Presence
Greetings Sequoyah, 

There was a good article on the Digital Footprint by Eric Sheninger (http://esheninger.blogspot.com/2015/11/pay-attention-to-your-digital-footprint.html?spref=tw) that came across the #oklaed twitter feed today. I keep thinking about what the Superintendent in Clinton said with "if you are not telling your story someone else certainly is". We need to be in control of what we do and say and how we project/protect ourselves. 

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy
