Overview

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 second webinar of a two part series, Mike will take you through supports for writing 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 written communication and support students in their independent writing 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!

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to identify a minimum of 3 features of G Suites apps used to support Writing (Docs, Slides, Sites, Sheets and Forms).
  2. Participants will be able to select at least 1 Writing app and/or extension in order to meet the needs of a student on their caseload or in their classroom.
  3. Participants will be able to search the Google Store for Writing apps and/or extensions based upon a minimum of 2 writing support features, utilizing a variety of feature match guides.
