Supports for Vision and Literacy Across Platforms (iOS and Chrome)

As Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) models become increasingly popular in schools and other settings, educators and other staff face both opportunities and challenges: on the one hand they have access to a variety of tools for creating the kinds of flexible environments our learners and clients need, but on the other hand it is difficult to keep up with the fast paced of innovation. In this session, we will explore a number of free and low cost tools for iOS and Chrome that you can use to provide access to information and flexible means of interaction and response for all, including apps and extensions for text to speech, dictation, word prediction and more. You will leave this session with a powerful toolkit for empowering all learners and clients to get the most from their technology, no matter what platform they use.
