Google For Education Supports for Struggling Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As many as two-thirds of students in classrooms today score below proficiency in reading. This includes students who speak English as a second language, students with disabilities, and others who do not yet possess the skills needed to meet today’s rigorous standards. While the Google Apps for Education environment provides great tools for productivity and collaboration, many supports needed by these struggling students are still lacking. Learn more about technology supports such as text-to-speech, word prediction, text and picture dictionaries, annotations and more that can help students who struggle with reading and writing demonstrated in Read&Write for Google™, a cloud-based solution that works with Google Documents, Web pages, PDFs, ePub, and KES files in Google Drive. These tools can be used through the Chrome browser on PCs, Macs, and Chromebooks. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of how to support a variety of struggling learners as well as useful tools that can help.
