Event description

Description

Our mission is to empower teachers and students to achieve more. Learning should be accessible for all student learning styles and needs, and teachers often have to differentiate their instruction to meet the physical, learning and behavioural needs of the diverse students in their class. Microsoft technologies can help teachers to differentiate learning for students and students can use Microsoft technologies to support their learning journey.

In this workshop, teachers will learn how to:

- Use the life-changing Learning Tools in OneNote 2016, Word 2016 and Office Online. Discover this amazing assistive technology that will help all students, but particularly visually impaired and dyslexic students with their reading, writing and comprehension

- Change the accessibility and system options in Windows 10 to make a device easier to use for hearing and vision impaired students

- Minimize distractions by customizing the Start screen, and using Edge web notes and extensions Improve focus with Office 2016 using read mode, shortcuts, translator, and accessibility checker

- Improve expression using Researcher, Editor and inking functions in Word 2016 and audio in OneNote 2016

There’s a wealth of tools built into Windows 10, Office 2016 and Office Online that can help ALL students feel empowered.

A number of Windows 10 devices with Office 2016 will be available for use on the day but the learning experience will be better if you bring your own device.
