What is this about?

Afternoon Session: Accessible Technologies with Avi Spector (1:00 PM – 3:30 PM)
I’ll be co-hosting this session with Heather Scott (ALDI) and Melissa D’Ambrosio (SWLSB) aiming to support teachers—both new and experienced—in understanding and implementing three popular assistive tech tools, including Read & Write (Google), Immersive Reader (Microsoft), and WordQ (Quillsoft). Participants will engage in station-based activities to learn about these three popular assistive tech tools and the importance of accessible teaching practices. My goal is to equip educators with practical strategies and tools to enhance classroom accessibility for ALL students.
This session will be held in English. The deadline to register is Monday, Oct. 23rd, at 4 PM. This session is intended for new teachers but welcomes teachers from all sectors, be it youth, Adult General Education, or Vocational Training teachers and consultants.
