New 2013:  Paul now endorses Google Chrome and blogs extensively about its many useful features in his Free Resources from the Net.

Paul Hamilton presented Why Firefox is a Better Browser for UDL, featuring ClickSpeak, Answers.com, and Awesome Highlighter.  He also showed how easy it is to install both the TidyRead and Readability applications which can be used to reduce clutter on web pages.  Paul mentioned Ira Socol's Toolbelt Theory and the importance of helping students to choose and assemble a collection of tools that work for them.  In the onsite training we have been looking at a Technology Toolbelt for Teachers involved in the UDL project.
