Reading with your Ears and Writing with your Voice (Accessible options in the Chrome Environment using Read & Write for Google Chrome)
Date & Time
Saturday, November 17, 2018, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Explore how students and teachers can use Read&Write for Google Chrome to create flexible and inclusive experiences. Learn how Read&Write makes literacy tasks more accessible in the G Suite environment by leveraging text to speech, word prediction, picture dictionaries and more. Consider how using Read&Write with the Universal Design for Learning framework can assist you in designing accessible lessons and provides access to the curriculum for all students. Using Pear Deck as a learning tool, we will be exploring features that integrate into websites and Google Docs to support differentiation around the way information is presented and the way students express what they know. Come for some hands-on practice using the tools and walk away with strategies that allow all students to engage with online content in a way that compliments their abilities and learning style. Please bring a laptop to this session to participate in the fun hands-on learning challenges. iPads and tablets will not support full participation in the hands-on aspects of this session.
