Accessing Built-in Accessibility Tools to Support Student Learning! Focus on Chromebooks.

March 24, 2021 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm

The current season of education has a renewed focus on equity and accessibility for students using devices in multiple learning environments.  Built-in accessibility features such as text-to-speech, speech-to-text, keyboard tool, and other built-in features are available to all students to support learning on different devices.  This series will focus on free robust built-in accessibility features available on Microsoft Office 365 Learning tools, Chromebooks, iPads, and MacBooks.  Join us for an interactive series as we explore the free accessibility feature and discuss applications to support all students.  

This is part of the Accessing Built-in Accessibility Tools to Support Student Learning! series.  Participants can attend all sessions in the series or can select individual sessions to attend.
