VizZle for Special Education

Often Special Education teachers are left out in the cold when it comes to new technologies and classroom resources.  While reading through a few tech journals this morning, I found VizZle, a web resource for Special Education teachers.  This resource allows teachers to create and share visual resources for special education and autistic students.  Resources are also available on the VizZle website.  If you follow the link to their parent website, there is a video you can watch to see the benefits of this product.  You can also sign up for a free trial.  The coolest thing about this resource is that it is compatible with Interactive Whiteboards like the Smartboard.  You can also check out a tutorial on their website, here

Still in the beta stage, Smart has introduced Smart Notebook Express.
