Rocketbook Blog
This blog contains ideas for educators about how to use Rocketbook. Although it is aimed at K-12 educators, some of the same principles can be applied to adult learners.

Virginia Assistive Technology System (VATS) Website
Check out the Virginia Assistive Technology System (VATS) website. VATS, administered by the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), has a library in Northern Virginia that contains many assistive technology devices. This library is free and open to any Virginia resident with a disability, their family members, and any services provider who works with them. The VATS library lends equipment for a short period of time and provides demonstrations of the equipment.
