Unstuck — 4 Tools that can Improve Writing Today

Presented by: Miguel Lucero:

About the Webinar

Writing is tough. No question. Even famous authors wrestle with conveying ideas in words. So when our struggling writers sit down to write only to stare at a blank page, we want to help them get through their many challenges including:

  • Difficulty turning ideas into writing
  • Poor fine motor skills
  • Messy or slow handwriting
  • Lack of attention to tasks
  • Poor spelling and grammar

Fortunately, hundreds of thousands of students every day find that they can get their ideas unstuck and flowing onto the screen with four simple tools found in Co:Writer®.

In this snapshot webinar, Miguel Lucero (Universal Design for Learning (UDL) / Assistive Technology (AT) Specialist) will walk you through these tools found in Co:Writer:

  • Word prediction—across websites, PDFs, email, and Google Classroom
  • Topic Dictionaries—adding topic-specific words
  • Voice typing
  • Translation and language supports

This free webinar is 20 minutes long. Attendees receive a Word Prediction Screening Tool PDF, Certificate of Attendance, and a free Trial of Co:Writer.
