The AT&AEM Center has partnered with Humanware to offer a training session on using the BrailleNote Touch with Google Classroom. The training is open to educators and support staff serving students with visual impairments, as well as parents and students at no cost. Please bring your own BrailleNote Touch if you can.


The 4 hour professional development session will be a hands-on workshop, intended to increase skills in Google Classroom using the BrailleNote Touch. Use of Google Classroom in K-12 settings continues to grow. Many students who read and write braille can find access to this application a challenge. Using a mobile version of the Classroom application with the BrailleNote Touch is a potential solution to this challenge. This hands-on workshop will focus on the use of Google Classroom with the BrailleNote Touch. Participants will learn to navigate the mobile Classroom application, download and edit various assignments and then submit to their teachers.
