Description

Accessibility and Inclusivity in the Classroom using Microsoft Tools

“As a special education teacher, I am constantly on the hunt for technology and tools that give students with disabilities an environment that is personalised, differentiated and yet as close to their peers’ experience as possible… With Windows 10 and Office 365, I have been able to find and use many of the accommodations that I have been looking for making consumption of materials, content creation, collaboration and organisation possible for students using the same technology and tools as their peers.” – Robin Lowell, Special Education, Science and Mathematics teacher.

Microsoft's mission is to empower all people and all organizations to achieve more. The classroom is no different. Microsoft Windows and Windows-based applications like Office, together with other assistive technologies, offer features that make computers easier to use for everyone – giving teachers the opportunity to provide personalised learning, and students an improved experience and equal opportunity in the classroom.

What will I learn from it?

You will learn how Windows 10 and Office 365 can transform your students’ educational experience and personalise their learning. You will see how the Learning Tools add-in for OneNote and Word Online can improve reading comprehension. You will learn how students can demonstrate their understanding using inputs other than keyboarding and text and equip them with productivity and collaborative tools, and skills they will use throughout their lives. Most importantly, you will learn how to navigate these tools and tailor them to your students’ individual learning needs.
