As an educator, you undoubtedly know that reading ability plays an important role in a student's academic success. But how do you entice and motivate reluctant readers to read actively and independently? Join Dr. Rob Furman as he delivers a fresh approach to integrating modern technology and reading. He will present technological resources that can easily be introduced into the 21st century classroom; from websites, to video conferencing, to apps, in order to bring a refreshing approach to reading. Dr. Rob discusses applications for each, bringing to light ways educators and schools can use these resources in an appropriate, budget-friendly manner to see a shift in active reading among their students.

Great Information!
A lot of good food for thought in here. We need to let our kids see us read!
