My Students Need That! Chrome Features & Extensions for Accessibility
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 12:00:00 AM UTC - 01:30:00 AM UTC
All students need to be able to access content in order to learn it. Google Chrome has a number of built-in accessibility features, and some cool extensions are available to help meet the needs in your classroom.
Do you have struggling learners in your classroom? Harness the power of Google Chrome to support diverse learners and build an inclusive classroom. Join us as we explore Chrome's built-in accessibility features and free apps and extensions that allow you to accommodate and differentiate the needs of your students. Efficient and user-friendly, these tools can be a game-changer for your students. This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.** OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend that you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to fully participate and therefore may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs. As a result of this session teachers will: 1. Learn about Chrome's built-in features that support accessibility, 2. Explore extensions to support the Google Chrome experience in your classroom; and 3. Plan for the instructional use of Chrome features and extensions to support all learners. Applicable ISTE Standards for Educators (2017)*: 1A; 5A; 6B * The text of these standards is copyrighted.
