There are many assistive technologies available for teachers and their students. In terms of communicating, digital technologies can include augmented and alternative communication apps, text to speech, text to sign language tools and closed captioning.
These digital technologies can assist your students, particularly those with written and/or verbal communication challenges. Providing options for students in how they share their learning can support equity in the classroom – ensuring access for diverse learners.
There are many resources that you can use in your classroom to afford multimodal communication opportunities for students and also assist students with exceptionalities. Below are only a few examples. Simply click on the name of the resources and you will be direct to the resource posts on Scarfe Sandbox or a concise introduction video! All of these tools are either free or with relatively low cost (less than 5 CAD).
