Chrome Supports for Struggling Students

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, collaboration, and research, it may not meet the needs of these struggling learners.

In this session, participants will learn more about common supports such as text-to-speech, text and picture dictionaries, translator, study skills, and annotations that can help students who struggle with reading and writing. Attendees will also see demonstrations of these support tools in Read&Write for Google™ which includes Read&Write for Google Docs™, a Chrome Extension that works on PCs, Macs, and Chromebooks to make Google Documents more accessible, and Apps to make other common file types, such as PDF and ePub, accessible within Google Drive.

Participants will walk away with a better understanding of how to support a variety of struggling learners in addition to useful tools that can help.
