Accessibility for every student
When all students can fully participate in the learning experience in their own way, everyone benefits. That's why we create Google for Education products with accessibility in mind, to help every student learn, be inspired and achieve their full potential.
Students in the same classroom learn in different ways. To support all students, we design technology to help educators meet the needs of every student, including those with impaired vision/hearing or physical disabilities, and diverse approaches to processing new information.
At Google, we believe accessible design is just good design. We create Google for Education products with accessibility in mind, to help every student learn, be inspired and achieve their full potential.
Building strategies for lifelong learning
When students have the tools that they need and understand how to use them, they build confidence and develop learning strategies that can help them for the rest of their lives. Features such as visual aids, closed captioning, and real-time collaboration in G Suite help overcome barriers to learning for all students, whether they have a lifelong or temporary disability, or learn best under specific conditions.
Unlocking access to inspiring experiences for all learners
Providing options for how students can use technology and do their work creates pathways to learning for all students. For example, Chromebook features, such as ChromeVox and Select-to-Speak, aid students who need visual or audio support while giving all students different ways to access information. Once you customise settings on a Chromebook, they’re applied every time a student logs in on any device, saving time and keeping students focused on learning.
Empowering every student to participate and succeed
Every student brings a different set of strengths, perspectives and needs to the classroom. From text magnification to voice typing to Braille support, Google for Education products make it easier for all students to learn side by side with their peers. Chrome extensions create even more possibilities for learning experiences that are both individualised and inclusive.
