When I have some free time, I like to catch up on my reading about technology… whatever comes up is what I focus on, when I do my search.  Today, I was captivated by the post on  January 19, 2016 By Anthony Salcito – Vice President, Worldwide Education, Microsoft. 

Anthony was talking about how at,  ” Microsoft we think a lot about these individualized learning experiences and how immersive and inclusive technology can help empower every student on the planet to achieve more”. 

What he is talking about is the Minecraft learning tools, and more importantly to me, the OneNote Learning Tools. I quote from his blog:

It is designed specifically to improve reading and writing experiences for all students, including for those with learning disabilities like dyslexia. Learning Tools incorporates special text formatting and other features that can make classroom activities easier, including advanced dictation, focus mode, and immersive reading.
