Chrome apps & extensions to support struggling learners- Going Google!

Many schools are discovering the use of the free Chrome Browser, and free apps and extensions in the Chrome browser to support education and learning. How do you support your struggling students? This webinar will present several apps and extensions to support literacy and executive function, and they are free to download right in the Chrome web store. If your students are using laptops (Mac or PC), Chromebooks, or a tablet (android or windows), Chrome apps and extensions can support them on their device in the classroom and at home. Apps and extensions demonstrated will include text to speech, voice recognition, mind mapping, word prediction, highlighting and research tools, timers, support with reading fluency and comprehension, and more. (Note: These apps and extensions do NOT work on the iPad or iOS devices).
