Immersive Reader

Immersive Reader, included in most Microsoft apps, including Word, OneNote, & TEAMS, is a full screen reading experience to increase readability of content in Microsoft documents. Learning Tools are designed to support students with dyslexia and dysgraphia in the classroom, but can support anyone who wants to make reading on their device easier. Immersive Reader can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

This Month's Featured Teacher

Special Thanks Go To...

Mrs. Buttrey at TFAA

I had the extreme pleasure of working with Mrs. Buttrey's class while they coded Dash through the steps of the water cycle! Check out the video below of what her class was able to accomplish on the very first day.

Mrs. Canon at BCE

After Mrs. Canon received a laptop for classroom use, she re-imagined the structure of her room to be more inclusive of the technology and her students! Now, instead of being trapped behind a desk in the corner, Mrs. Canon is immersed in the center of her classroom and is using her new tech tool to deliver even more interactive, quality tech-based content to her students!
