Sites I Use and Recommend
FOR THE MOST UP TODATE LIST
CLICK


I divide my resources into four general categories that address baselines for my instruction.  Sites are listed under the earliest category I found them to be useful and may be appropriate for higher functioning students as well.

Categories 1-4 cover sites for direct instruction.
1- PRE-EMERGENT    Student displays only fleeting engagement/ no awareness of tech
2 - EMERGENT             Student displays minimal engagement/ some awareness of tech
3 - NOVICE                     Student  can engage/operates tech with close supervision
4- NOVICE                      Student will engage/operate tech with prompts


   This page is NOT KEPT CURRENT. 
See the complete list on my  Portaportal


  

   
Categories 5 - on are for personal reference.
