Apps Across the Curriculum: Supporting Diverse Learners with Google and iOS


March 7, 2017, Online


After first issuing 1:1 iPads, Chromebooks and laptops, many schools are now implementing BYOD – (Bring Your Own Device) How do you support diverse learners on all devices, using free and low cost apps and AT solutions? This session will focus on ensuring success for all learners using the tools, features and apps available in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Chrome Web Store. These free and low cost AT solutions support personalizing education for students, as well as engaging and including all students in a UDL environment.
