A Special Sparkle: KEEPING TRACK OF PROGRESS in the Special Education Classroom Hi! I'm Mary Ann from SPECIAL ED SPOT.I am so excited about guest blogging here at Special Sparkle. Today, I wanted to share an awesome app for documenting and monitoring progress. One important thing in teaching and especially in the Special Education classroom is keeping track of student progress. Monitoring progress not only shows you, as the teacher, the growth students have made in skills; it also provides documentation as to what you have taught for your records and for your supervisors.

Interactive Storytelling and Coding - Tech With Jen When someone shares with me a new technology tool, I immediately try to think of ways I can use it in the classroom.
