Got assistive technology apps? This month the staff at Learning and Leading with Technology, journal of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE),is soliciting apps that educators use for special education students. If you have one or two apps that you love, please include a few words or sentences about why you like the app and how you use it. Send the name of the app along with the platform(s) it runs on and the cost to Diana Fingal at dfingal@iste.org by Aug. 6, and we will consider it for the November issue of Learning and Leading with Technology.
