This is a recording of a presentation by Shelly Fryer (@sfryer) at the 2016 iPadPalooza Conference in Austin, Texas. The title of the session was, “iPad Literacy Apps.” The description was:

Learn about the comparative features and how to use different iPad literacy apps to assess student reading levels and provide differentiated / customized reading passages and activities for students on their specific reading levels. The following apps will be demonstrated and explored: Lexia Core 5, myON Reader, News-o-Matic, and Raz-Kids (Kids A-Z). The SeeSaw app will also be demonstrated as a tool for helping students practice and record their oral fluency and save those recordings in a personalized digital portfolio both parents and teachers can securely access.
