Part 1- True/False
When I submitted this the Numbers were there, they seem to have disappeared when I answered it. They are in order numbers 1 through 20
1. Students with special needs or students with exceptionalities- gifted or disabled students
2. Custom dictionaries- I do not see any choice in column 2 that best represents this choice
3. Dysgraphia- illegible handwriting, and/or fine motor skills
4. Concept mapping- tools to support idea formation
5. Word prediction software- guesses the next word on the babis of the first letters typed or a particular activity
6. Diverse learners- students with varying skill levels
7. Talking spell checkers- reads aloud misspelled words and suggested corrections
8. Recorded books- reads aloud printed text, provides enhanced visual display
9. High-interest, low-level books-content presented at an easier level

Matching- Part II- 11-20
11. Assistive listening devices- support students who have hearing difficulties
12. Sound field amplification system- classroom loudspeakers

were looking for software that would make it easy for your teachers, principals, and
curriculum directors to share administrative and academic information, what kind of
software would you select and why?
I would select a "learning management system" because it can be used to maintain educational records, and collaborate online with teachers and administrators.
4. Explain briefly how hypermedia serves to reinforce and enhance learning with
Hypermedia can reinforce and enhance learning through educational software by providing students the opportunity to become an "author" of their own learning by constructing knowledge through various links and activities they choose to explore. By doing so, students gain a deeper understanding of knowledge, and use higher level thinking in order to gain that knowledge. In addition, by using hypermedia, students become more engaged in their learning, therefore making the deeper connections we wish for them to seek.
Once again, I hope I have assisted you this evening. I put a lot of time and effort into your answers. If you feel to same, I would greatly appreciate it if you accept my answers so that I am credited with my responses. Thank you and have a wonderful night.

I will work on providing you information for the essays, but I cannot write the essays for you as I have other jobs waiting. If I have assisted you thus far, I would appreciate it if you accept my answer so that I receive credit from the site. Thank you for requesting me again, it is always a pleasure!
Here are the ideas for the essays.
* through pen pals with other buildings* student collaboration* With interactive assignments* Concern would be issues with knowledge of using the Internet* Loss of context over e-mail exchange
* video conferencing, useful to talk with individuals in different areas of the world* E-mail to provide real time updates to students and new assignments* Search engine has become an invaluable tool for learning.
Once again, thank you for allowing me to work on these for you. Please feel free to request me at anytime!
