References and Suggested Readings

Technology and the Diverse Learner provides a substantial amount of information in an easy-to-read format, which is important since so many books on this subject use an extensive array of technical terms that are often confusing and impossible to apply in everyday practice.

"This book would be valuable to any science teacher or educator who teaches a diverse population of students, including inclusion students. It is a valuable tool for the general educator, whether a 'techie' or a novice at new technologies; it is a source of creative ideas that provide and overview of different technologies that can be used with specific learners."
