Learning Tools with the Microsoft Surface Pro 4
October 2016 Presentation:
To address the problem of practice I am researching, fluency, I will use a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Tablet with One Note and the Learning Tools add-in installed. The Learning Tools will allow me to copy and paste reading passages into One Note and then alter the passages to meet the needs of each student. For example, font spacing and short lines will address reading speed and prevent visual overcrowding. With one click, I can highlight parts of speech, supporting instruction. If the length of a word is a barrier, I can use one click to separate the words into syllables. The students will practice reading the passages until the words are read naturally and without hesitation. The reading passages will come from the reading series used in my classroom, SRA’s Imagine It.
