Chromebooks come loaded with powerful tools, including many accessibility features. For some students, the built-in accessibility tools are sufficient, but many students need to go beyond the foundation—especially students who:

  • Are challenged with the mechanics of writing
  • Are reading below grade level
  • Have learning disabilities including dyslexia, dysgraphia, or ADHD

There is a path to help these students access grade level text and make progress across the curriculum—with Google and beyond.

Join Mike Marotta, RESNA Certified Assistive Technology Professional / ISTE author as he shows you both—the built-in Google Accessibility features, and adds the “walls and roof” (Co:Writer® and Snap&Read™) to help students to access grade level text and make progress across the curriculum. You’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of:

  • Organizational tools to support Executive Functioning
  • Voice typing—when it’s easier to speak than use the keyboard
  • Reading comprehension tools
  • PDF Annotation and accessibility for digital classrooms
  • Read-aloud accommodations
  • Language/Translation supports for ELL students
  • Word Prediction/completion to get words flowing and down “on paper”

Participants will walk away with Google Tools and Beyond: Technology to Support Learning Recovery, PDF.
