Learner 2 is used to using lots of different devices. I would suggest that she completes her work using her tablet and laptop in combination, so she can work anywhere, on the go. I do not think it would be a good idea for her to work on her phone, as producing resources on such a small screen could be problematic for her considering her dyslexia causes her problems with her vision. With both her tablet and laptop, she can adjust the screen colour to yellow with black writing as she find this assists her reading and writing ability. The iPhone does not have such facilities.
Appropriate tools for Learner 2
Learner 2 would benefit from being shown tools which use plenty of colour or offer the option to change the colour of the writing screen. Therefore, planning tools like Lino It and Trello would be ideal for this learner. They also allow the posting of videos and images within the planning. Padlet does not allow the user to change the colour of the posts, so it may not be as useful. As per the video above, Microsoft's One Note Learning Tools could also assist her with planning. She could use it to make notes on her work i.e to plan and collaborate, wherever she is, on whatever device she has. It can record her voice instead of her needing to type which has obvious benefits to her as she struggles with her spelling. She can also adjust her text to make it easier to read on this tool, as well as contrast background and text to speech reader. She would also benefit from using Claro Read on Chrome when completing internet research, as she finds reading hard. This text to speech tool can be used over the internet to help her understand any internet research, provided she uses Google Chrome browser. Again, infographic/poster tools like Canva and Picktochart, as well as presentation tools like Prezi and Emaze could be used with this learner to produce her resource for the same reason, i.e colour change of poster/infographic or slide, wherever she needs to write. These tools would engage her younger audience in the work place, due to their colour and templates and she could show them to her son who is starting to use digital tools in his schooling, especially as he is starting to be asked to present his ideas using a presentation model.
