Curriculet Curriculet frees up my time outside of the classroom - no more collecting reading questions, trying to spot-check them, giving points for writing something down, whether or not they actually did the reading or understood it. - Jessica Rice, English Teacher at Summit Preparatory High School With Curriculet, I can not only change our reading instruction on a classroom level by flipping the instruction, but also influence reading instruction on a departmental level by encouraging the department to expand the curriculum: we can read MORE in less time with Curriculet. - Kate Baker, English teacher at Southern Regional high School I cannot WAIT to share this with my colleagues. This is going to revolutionize the way I can teach info texts, short stories, and excerpts from novels! - Morgan Toal, English teacher at Lakewood middle school

Dyslite for OpenDyslexic TechCrunch viewed with Dyslite Dyslite for OpenDyslexic converts the font on all web pages to OpenDyslexic, an open-source font type that many people with dyslexia have found easier to read than traditional typefaces (but you already know that!) Dyslite was designed to be a very light plugin so that it would not interfere with the load times on web pages. Once you have the Dyslite plugin installed and enabled, text on webpages loaded by your web browser are automatically and instantly converted into your dyslexia-optimized web font of choice (we currently offer OpenDyslexic, Mono Dyslexic, and Gill Dyslexic). Just install it once you’ll never have to worry about it again. But it’ll always be behind the scenes, working to help you read faster and more efficiently. Cross-browser fingerprinting test 2.0 While we browse the web, most web pages have an interest in observing our behaviour in order to achieve certain business benefits. Read more » For example, they would like to know what kind of content the visitor is interested in, and, more specifically, what to recommend to a user who has already downloaded certain page(s) (e.g. article(s)). Therefore, vaguely knowing users’ areas of interest is often insufficient; most web pages will be interested in the entire course of a visit, and, in the case of returning visitors, they want to know the whole browsing history, too. In order to pull this off, the web server needs to store a personal 'file' about each user, and must be able to identify returning visitors.However, there are certain technical restrictions to such activities, and therefore newer and newer techniques are invented to identify and profile users.
