Using information technology to teach students with dyslexia

The use of information technology in teaching students with dyslexia

Dr Margaret Crombie talks about multisensory learning and the use of information technology.

Please watch this presentation and take notes on how information technology can be used as part of a structured multisensory learning program.

You can also think about the questions we will be discussing in the next step:

  • In what ways is IT useful to help dyslexic learners?
  • Are there any specific tools, applications, software, websites that you would recommend?
  • What difficulties/barriers have you experienced in using modern technological tools when working with dyslexic students?
  • Have you got any suggestions for how to overcome these?

The video is available to you as a courtesy of Pearson Education.
