In today's learning environments, we teach a huge range of diverse learners with greatly differing needs.
Those fortunate to be in 1:1 or BYOD environments can take advantage of the many software apps and extensions, such as personalised playlists (Sophia.org) that exist to act as additional support for those who need it - technological teaching assistants!
One app I have recently been exploring is the Read&Write for Google extension.
Read&Write for Google is a free* Google Chrome Web App that increases accessibility for struggling readers and writers, and can help offer assistance to EAL learners.
