Read and Write for Google allows struggling students to access any curriculum and complete reading, writing, and research assignments as well as take tests independently. This extension appears as a toolbar on any Google document and allows students to have text read aloud. It also includes a comprehensive set of support tools for reading, writing, studying, research, and test-taking. Examples of the support tools include word prediction, speech to text, text to speech, picture dictionary, vocabulary list creator, and highlight collector. NEF’s investment will increase the reach of the District’s current investment from 10 to 150 students for the Pilot program.
