Students in Grades 6, 7 & 8 have an HP Chromebook that travels with them throughout their school day. Students utilize these devices as tools for developing digital skills (keyboarding, publishing, digital citizenship), enhancing learning and engagement, providing access to assistive technology, and supporting collaboration and communication between peers.
Google Apps for Education include a variety of web-based publishing tools which foster collaboration, communication, and creation. Software such as Google Docs and Google Slides allow real-time completion of projects by multiple users.
Why Google for Assistive Tech?
Google offers a variety of apps, extensions, and add-ons that serve as resources and accessibility tools which are stored directly to individual student Chrome accounts. Students can sign into their Chrome account on ANY computer (at school or home) and have access to their chosen extensions and add-ons, thus providing personalized accommodations. Lastly and importantly, students with dyslexia are able to complete their work alongside their peers without have to use a special device.
