Inclusive Technology: Google Read & Write

Read and Write for Google Chrome is an extension that works with online productivity suites (e.g., G Suite or 0365) and webpages.  This session will focus on the features of Read and Write including the word predictor, text to speech, check it, and a PDF Reader.  Participants will also review students’ ability to collect information using the highlighter tool and build a vocabulary list, with visuals and definitions.  We will demonstrate how Read & Write can be used with OverDrive and Ebooks.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or other personal device, if possible.  A maximum of 40 chrome books will be available to borrow.  An additional 40 people can attend but must bring their own device.  NOTE:  on the registration form you will need to indicate whether you have a personal device or need to borrow one.
