Event description

Description

At Microsoft, we envision a future where students facing challenges to their learning or situational limitations have the technology they need to work efficiently and independently from any device. We’re committed to helping students of all abilities access information and have fulfilling interactions everywhere, both in person and virtually. Teachers know all too well the challenge of teaching a classroom of students with different abilities. It takes time to find and maintain the assistive technologies your students need to succeed. Office 365 applications offer several built-in capabilities that make it easier for teachers to create content that can be accessed without barriers by students with disabilities, share content on accessible channels, and make schools and classrooms more inclusive.

This workshop will explore resources and show teachers how to leverage accessibility capabilities built right into Windows 10 and Office 365. In particular, we will focus on The Learning Tools add-in for Office 365 which has been shown to improve reading and writing skills, including gifted learners, students with learning differences or a combination of any of the broad range of unique student abilities.
