Reading with your Ears and Writing with your Voice? Accessible Options in the Chrome Environment with Read&Write for Google Chrome
Date & Time
Saturday, April 7, 2018, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Explore how students and teachers can use Read&Write for Google Chrome to create flexible and inclusive experiences for today's diverse classrooms. 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. We will be exploring features that integrate into websites, Google Docs and PDFs 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.
