The first Google Apps for Education Summit in New Hampshire is a fantastic two day event with sessions from Google staff, Google Certified Teachers and Google Apps EDU Certified trainers. In addition there will be a Chromebooks playground for the duration of the conference.
I will be presenting Chrome as AT (Assistive Technology):
Many schools are increasing their use of Google Chrome Apps for Education, as well as implementing 1:1 devices for students, including the Chromebook, or laptops/tablets with access to the Chrome Browser. How do Educators and Special Educators support the struggling student while using Google Chrome? Come learn about several FREE apps and extensions to support your struggling reader or writer, including options for text to speech, voice recognition (speech to text), executive function, highlighting and study skills, organization and time management, mind-mapping, researching, visual support, math support and more! These apps and extensions support all learners, including those who struggle with literacy and executive function.
