Apps and Extensions for Learning Differences
Date: February 10, 2016
Time: 9:30am – 11:30am
Location: Poplar Building Conference Room
Description: Chromebooks have become a viable tool in providing curriculum access and facilitating academic achievement for students with learning differences. It is well known that one size does not fit all. Accessibility options through Chrome apps and extensions can provide solutions for student success in the classroom and beyond. Finding the right apps and extensions can be difficult and time consuming, so we will provide ready-to-use solutions for learning differences. Chrome apps and extensions can help students with vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing, grammar, studying, taking notes, and organization. These resources are typically free of cost while providing invaluable benefits. Apps and extensions will be demonstrated during this session. A list of helpful resources will be provided.
