Today I had the pleasure of visiting Steiner Ranch Elementary to see AT in action! The staff there are truly working with the latest and greatest technology with their students.
Kristin Wood, a member of the team, showed me how they are using the new Read and Write toolbar from Google Chrome to assist students with reading, writing, and spelling assignments. Below is a short video of Ms. Wood demonstrating some of the toolbars capabilities.
Like other toolbars Read and Write sits on the top of the page, just below the address bar. Once you have Google Chrome installed, you can log on to your Google Drive account and create a Google Doc (document). If you have the toolbar installed you will be able to pull it down to display the task menu by clicking on the purple Read and Write button.
