Clear Creek ISD is a leader in technology in the classroom. Here are some great tools to investigate!Below is a list of technology tools easily available for anyone. Whether a great learning website to reinforce skills being developed, text to speech apps to ease reading tasks or a tool to increase productivity, these resources are a great starting place to investigate the importance of technology for students, with or without disabilities. Please remember, while many students would benefit from these tools, the school district is not providing this information in a way to imply that your child must have these tools to be successful.
Please remember, technology changes rapidly. This is not an exhaustive list and some of the resources may change availability at any time!
