Google Tools for Struggling Students

This course covers tools for accessibility and accommodations either from Google or that work within the Google suite of products. These tools can be so helpful for all learners, whether in person or when working remotely. In the course we take a look at four specific categories of tools:


First, text to speech tools that will read aloud content for our students.

Next, speech to text tools that will allow our students to simply speak and have what they say automatically typed up for them.

Third, readability tools which will make it easier for students to read what is on a webpage.

And finally reading comprehension tools to help students better understand the content they have read.
