Accessibility Teacher Toolkit
In this session, we will explore edtech tools that will level the playing field for students with disabilities in online, hybrid, or traditional classroom settings. We will check out and use accessibility options for Microsoft including the immersive reader, google chrome add ons and extensions, and websites that will save you teacher time when it comes to differentiating content! These accessibility tools will knock your teacher's socks off!
Microsoft's accessibility features are awesome! They're really easy to use and will help you get around the computer more easily. Plus, there are many other features that make Microsoft the best out there for people with disabilities.
With Google apps and extensions, you can differentiate instruction by allowing students to practice skills at their own pace.
