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 resources - thank you!
Excellent presentation! Although as an ELA teacher, I was familiar with a few of the apps, there were several that I have never used in my classroom. I look forward to trying them out. I appreciated the presenter's enthusiasm with getting our students to look forward to reading! Thank you for sharing!
Good information. Some of the apps mentioned are things I had never heard of , but am interested in learning more about.
It was extremely helpful and had a lot I can take back and share with my fellow educators.
