AT Tool Time Learning Modules 2017/2018

Accessibility Options Across Platforms

  • With so many apps and software tools available for our technology today, it is sometimes difficult to know what might work for an individual. But wait ….. what about built in accessibility features? These supports are built into every computer and mobile device platform, yet many people don’t know what they already have! Let’s dive deep into the built in accessibility features of your devices (iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Chromebook) to explore options to support individuals in the area of reading, writing, vision, physical access and more!

AT Tools for Reading: iOS and Android

  • Are your students struggling with reading? Do you want to integrate mobile devices (iOS and Android smartphones and tablets) into the classroom environment to provide accommodations? Let’s explore an array of mobile device apps (iOS and Android) focused on providing support for struggling readers. We will explore features to support readers in the areas of phonics, vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.

AT Tools for Reading: Chrome

  • Are your students struggling with reading? Did your school / district recently “go google”? Do you want to integrate the Chromebooks into the classroom environment to provide accommodations? Let’s explore an array of Chrome apps and extensions focused on providing support for struggling readers. We will explore features to support readers in the areas of phonics, vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.

AT Tools for Writing: iOS and Android

  • How do we provide support to struggling writers? Let’s leverage the power of the mobile devices in our classrooms and explore apps for iOS and Android. We will explore features to support writers in the areas of pre-writing; drafting; revising; editing and publishing.

AT for Writing: Chrome

  • Do you have Chromebooks in your classroom? Do you need to accommodate struggling writers? Let’s explore Chrome tools available to support all writers. From Chrome apps to extensions to G Suite add-ons, we will explore features to support writers in the areas of pre-writing; drafting; revising; editing and publishing.

Let’s Talk Communication with AAC Apps

  • No area of Assistive Technology has been fundamentally shifted by mobile devices more than the area of Augmentative and Alternative Communication. No longer are we discussing devices costing several thousand dollars. Instead we are talking about apps cosing several hundred dollars. But are they appropriate for all communicators? Let’s discuss this area of AT and determine the appropriateness of AAC apps.

Working w/ PDFs: Tools, Tips & Strategies

  • Even with the infusion of tech tools in our classrooms, staff may provide inaccessible print materials to students. This webinar will focus on apps (for mobile devices and Chrome) that can be used to level the playing field for struggling students. We will explore tools to provide text to speech support for print as well as tools to give students the ability to write directly on these files.

AT Tools for Executive Function

  • Students are using more technology than ever. But for students struggling with executive functioning skills, more technology does not automatically lead to greater productivity. Let’s explore an array of mobile device apps and Chrome based apps and extensions focused on providing support for organization and executive function. Areas of focus include: organization, scheduling, task completion, time management and more.

Math Solutions that Promote UDL

  • How do we engage students and provide flexibility in the math classroom? Join the discussion as we explore web based supports, along with apps, that can be used to assist students with computation, word problems, equations and more. Let’s provide flexible supports for all learners!

Engage Students with Audio and Video

  • Let’s explore the range of tools – both websites and apps – that are available to provide multiple means of engagement, representation and action / expression. Whether we are using these tools to share content or to amplify student voices, there is no denying that students are engaged by audio and video.
