Description

Educators today are integrating technology into the classroom in new ways and are looking for more ways to use technology as a tool to help students of all learning styles and abilities. It is our professional responsibility to help ensure students of all abilities have opportunities to learn 21st century skills. Accessibility and personalisation features in Microsoft products ensure that all students have the opportunity to enhance learning using personal technology.

In this workshop we will explore accessibility and assistive technologies available in Windows 10 and Office 365 for students with different needs:

  • Vision impairments
  • Learning impairments
  • Mobility and dexterity impairments
  • Hearing impairments, deafness and language impairments

Course objectives:

  • Learn how Windows 10 and Office 365 can personalise learning for all students
  • Explore ways to improve focus using Windows 10 and Office 365
  • See how the Learning Tools add-in for OneNote can improve reading comprehension
  • Learn how students are able to demonstrate their understanding using inputs other than keyboarding and text
