## Use Paint Shop and a Stylus to Improve Instruction.

 Educational Philosophy     Techniques suggested for LD students work well with almost all students -- color-coded notes, vary the means of instruction -- include kinesthetic as well as auditory, visual, and symbolic -- include repetition in another format, include repetition in the same format.     Color is important. White space is important. Easy access to files is important.     During class, face-to-face contact with students is VERY important. It can turn a lecture into a conversation.

 Paint Shop and a tablet can't be beat: To create and post colorful, CLEAR, DAILY, class notes. To move images, screen capture, and store in notes. To prepare for tomorrow's work. To repeat favorite lessons. To review. TO MAXIMIZE THE TIME YOU SPEND LOOKING AT STUDENTS!     The students agree.     See a demonstration and discuss the logistics for improving instruction in this way.
