Pivoting away from the traditional classroom in 2020 has shown teachers, parents, and students that we have some work to do to make online learning equitable and accessible to every single student. ReadSpeaker is committed to adding a voice (or an instant audiobook) across a school’s online learning environment. ReadSpeaker’s integrations require no downloads and no passwords and have become a vital study aide for students across the country.
Participants will learn:
1. How 1-Click listening to course content in Google Classroom or a school’s learning management system works
2. Why ReadSpeaker’s usage has increased 40% since the start of the pandemic
3. How students use ReadSpeaker to study, block out online distractions and listen to course material offline
There will be a question and answer session at the end of the demonstration.
ReadSpeaker will be rolling out a no-cost Teacher Program this Summer/Fall. Individual teachers can sign up for a classroom account of TextAid. This digital workplace for students will read aloud documents and student-created content. Giving students the option to listen to readings from class helps improve comprehension and help with literacy skills. The easy-to-use accessibility tools such as the reading ruler, open dyslexic font and enlarge text will assist students across the board. A teacher training session with the ReadSpeaker team will be provided to train teachers in how to use TextAid and support their students. The classroom license will be available for 6 months.
