Many schools are now implementing Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) or 1-to-1 programs that provide more choice for educators and learners. Some are “Going Google” with Chromebooks and Google Apps, others are using Apple devices (iPads and Macs), Android tablets and laptops.
- How do you support diverse learners on all devices, using free and low cost (high quality) Apps, built-in tools & AT solutions?
- How do you support the use of these technologies as they transition to post-secondary education?
This webinar focuses on ensuring access and success for all learners in higher education using AT. Participants learn about a number of built-in accessibility features, as well as a number of free and low cost apps, extensions, add-ons and web resources to support students in accessing textbooks and learning materials (Handouts/Worksheets/ presentations/ labs/data collection), interactive and multi-sensory assignments and activities, research and study skills and completing assignments using technology. AT and app solutions to support all students, including those with learning disabilities (including Dyslexia), physical disabilities, low vision or blindness, difficulties with executive functioning, literacy and math are discussed.
