WETA, which produces LD OnLine, is proud to be a Founding Partner of Understood.org, an outstanding new resource for parents of children with learning and attention issues. We have joined with 14 other non-profit organizations — including the Poses Family Foundation, the National Center for Learning Disabilities, Common Sense Media, and CAST — in contributing to the development of Understood.org. In light of that exciting collaboration, LD OnLine will now focus primarily on serving teachers, principals, school psychologists, reading specialists, tutors, and other education professionals. We know that children do best when they have strong support at school and at home. We hope that the combination of LD OnLine, Understood.org, our partners' websites, and WETA's other national websites — Reading Rockets, Colorin Colorado, and AdLit.org — will help to provide reliable, authoritative guidance to anyone involved in helping students learn and succeed.
Dr. Judy Zorfass and PowerUp What Works give advice on how to use evidence-based practices to help your students develop strong research skills that can work across content areas. They include a list of technology supports like AudioNote for conducting interviews, SurveyGizmo for conducting surveys, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library for primary sources.
