About the Series:

Microsoft is teaming up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events aimed at supporting school leaders and classroom educators to further embed and benefit from the features provided by Microsoft tools. The focus of these events is to help institutions looking to develop both their in-class delivery and remote programmes.

Event Summary:

Discover the accessibility features built into Microsoft tools that support EAL and students who need additional support with their learning.

Type of Event: Webinar

A 1-hour Teams Live event with an unlimited number of participants. These events will include presentations and, where appropriate, live demonstrations, followed by 15-20 minutes of Q&A.

Session Overview:

In this session, you will be taken through a range of accessibility options when approaching teaching and learning with Office 365 and Microsoft tools.  We will cover: 

  • The Immersive Reader and how this can be used to support a range of learning needs. 
  • Authoring accessible content in PowerPoint (and other Microsoft tools.) 
  • Using PowerPoint Live, Rehearse with Coach and other online PowerPoint features. 
  • Using the dictate feature in Word and other Microsoft tools. 
  • Using auto-captioning in Microsoft Stream and Microsoft Teams. 

This session is aimed at educators who would like to know about some of the accessibility features within Office 365 and the ways in which they can promote digital inclusivity with their classes. It is intended for educators who have already started their journey using Office 365.
