Literacy is a human right and all our students deserve to learn to read and write. With technology more infused in the classroom than ever before, we have even greater opportunities to match the features of our Chrome based tools to the needs of every student.
During the first webinar of a two part series, Kelly and Mike will take you through supports for reading that are available within the Chrome Browser and/or on a Chromebook. Attend to learn how your Google Tools (G Suite apps & Chrome apps/extensions) can be applied to literacy learning and support students in their independent reading needs in the classroom and homework. Make sure that you are attending the webinar with a Chrome enabled device (Chromebook, PC, Mac) and know your Google password!
- Participants will be able to identify a minimum of 3 features of G Suites apps used to support Reading (Docs, Slides, Sites).
- Participants will be able to select at least 1 reading app and/or extension in order to meet the needs of a student on their caseload or in their classroom.
- Participants will be able to search the Google Store for Reading apps and/or extensions based upon a minimum of 2 reading features, utilizing a variety of feature match supports.
Mike has served as a statewide resource on assistive technology in New Jersey, New Hampshire, and in Massachusetts, and has coordinated information repositories, online resources, wikisites, blogs, podcast pages, and other internet based resources to enable easy access to correct and updated information on a timely basis to customers and stakeholders of assistive technology, in order to foster the development of an AT community and facilitate knowledge transfer.
