KidSmart: Assistive Technology and Other Resources

This webinar was held 1/19/2010

This Webinar introduced participants to assistive technology and other resources for young learners. Assistive Technology consists of tools, software and hardware that help someone do something they could not do. Something you may be familiar with, are different sized keyboards and mouse for young learners.

TraduceloAhora! and Reading Companion were two IBM resources shared with participants. TraduceloAhora! is an IBM Translation tool that users find beneficial in bridging language barriers. Users have the ability to have English Web sites translated into Spanish. Users can also use a feature to have email communications between parents and teachers translated. Reading Companion is a Web based literacy tool. Contact your IBM CCCA Manager for more information on these exciting tools.

Whether new to assistive technology or knowledgeable about assistive technology all participants will find this overview helpful. Learn about technology tools that help children who struggle with learning reach their full potential.
