Project ESCOLAR: Etext Supports for Collaborative Online Learning and Academic Reading
Project ESCOLAR is a collaborative effort between the Center for Advanced Technology in Education (CATE) at the University of Oregon, Georgia Southern University, and the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study group. Project ESCOLAR will develop, test, evaluate, refine, and disseminate Collaborative Online Projects (COPs) designed to support academic reading of science content for middle school (6th-8th grade) Students with Learning Disabilities (SWLD). Each COP will provide reading instruction on science content through online materials that are accessible to SWLD when multiple types of eText supports are integrated (Anderson-Inman, 2009; Anderson-Inman & Horney, 2007), including access to friendly vocabulary definitions, text-to-speech, note taking abilities, guided questions, and reading prompts.
Congratulations to Fatima and all her collaborators.
