I thought this chapter was going to be boring at first but some of the software talked about, I was thinking of several uses in our classroom. Word processing in the classroom is used frequently in our building. Spreadsheets not so often, but using them as a progress sheet in meeting goals from IEP's would be "handy". Database system for student information is useful too.
I guess I've been evaluating software all the time -in my head- just not using a software evaluation rubric. That was new to me.
