Thank you for sharing these tools!
I enjoyed learning about another online reader that is available for my students, and am interested in trying the Microsoft Lens!

I thought this was a great presentation and hope to use some of this in my classroom and to encourage some of my colleagues to use it for "my kids."

I wish I had known about some of these tools for a boy I worked with when starting in my district. I think that these features can really make a world of difference for so many students.
