Tools for Construction and Composition
Learners need a toolkit to help them access information in a way that makes the most sense to them. Using typical methods may not always be the best tools for today’s learners. As long as the lesson being presented is not tool specific, the learner should have options for which tools he or she chooses to use to access and process the content of the lesson. This can include tools such as word processors with spelling and grammar checking features, text to speech software, calculators, sentence starters and prompts, manipulatives and models, and access to a wide variety of web applications that may be applicable to the learning.
