After first issuing 1:1 iPads, Chromebooks, and laptops, many schools are now implementing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs that provide more choice for educators and learners. Some are Going Google with Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education (GAFE), some are using iPads and tablets. How do you support diverse learners on all devices, using free and low cost Apps & AT solutions? Join us for UDL presented session focusing on ensuring success for all learners using the tools, features and apps available in Apple's App Store and Devices and in Google's Chrome Web Store and Docs. These free and low cost AT solutions personalize education for students, as well as engage and include all students in a UDL environment, on all devices, across the curriculum. Learn about a number of built-in accessibility features, as well as a number of free and low cost apps, extensions, add-ons and web resources to support your learners in accessing textbooks, learning materials (handouts/worksheets), research and study skills and completing assignments using technology. AT and app solutions to support diverse learners are also explored including those with learning disabilities (including dyslexia), physical disabilities, low vision or blindness, and difficulties with executive functioning, literacy and math. Discover a powerful toolkit for fostering access and success across all platforms, devices, and subjects!
