Technology Websites

Below is a list of technology tools easily available for anyone. Whether a great learning website to reinforce skills being developed, text to speech apps to ease reading tasks or a tool to increase productivity, these resources are a great starting place to investigate the importance of technology for students, with or without disabilities. Please remember, while many students would benefit from these tools, the school district is not providing this information in a way to imply that your child must have these tools to be successful.

Please remember, technology changes rapidly. This is not an exhaustive list and some of the resources may change availability at any time!

Learning Ally Resources
Students identified with dyslexia in TISD will automatically be given a Learning Ally account. Parents will receive a letter giving the username and password to access the Learning Ally account. Free software (Link) is available to access books downloaded from Learning Ally. This software is available to download on district provided tablets, but must be downloaded by a campus learning technology coach.
