Break down of Days Instruction
The first day's content is all Bookshare. Participants get an in-depth training on Bookshare and have plenty of time to download, install, and explore applications that read Bookshare books (on Mac and Windows computers and mobile devices).
The second day's agenda includes time in the morning to further explore computer applications and mobile apps and talk about feature match (matching the features of the reading tool to the student’s needs). But much of the second day is information about making decisions about AEM and AT.
