Many of the applications and software programs currently utilized for communication highlight and/or combine numerous linguistic features. But, what works optimally for your student/client/patient: common or core vocabulary (icons and/or text); spelling (letter-by-letter and/or with abbreviations); OR combinations of character/word/phrase and/or grammar prediction, which is static or dynamic and can be based on factors such as frequency or recency?

Boston Public Schools Goes Google With Chromebooks and Google Apps
In this webinar, you'll hear directly from Sean McMahon, network security manager for Boston Public Schools (BPS). Sean will discuss how the district, in conjunction with the city of Boston, decided to go Google. BPS provides all 57,000 students in their K12 district with Google Apps for Education accounts, as well as 10,000 Chromebooks. The district is focused on closing the opportunity and achievement gaps for all their students and preparing them for academic and future career success. And with Chromebooks and Google Apps, BPS found an affordable and easy solution to do just that.
Learn about BPS' decision to move to a cloud-based platform with Google Chromebooks. The Google Admin Console allows the lean IT staff to deploy and manage all 10,000 devices in the 70 Boston schools from a central location, which has helped contribute to a successful roll-out of PARCC TestNav assessments this year.
