Assignment 3 – Video


Immersive Reader

I got to see a great deal of great educational technology as a Microsoft Educator. As part of the MIEE program, I was able to visit some Microsoft Engineers, and see first hand some of the tools in development. Immersive Reader came to fruition as a passion project of two Vancouver Microsoft employees during a Microsoft hackathon, originally envisioned as an add-in to OneNote. It was wildly successful, and later integrated into other Microsoft platforms. When I present it to my students, I think the screen capture video is most appropriate. I like them to be able to “follow along” as they try out the feature. I also find that my ELL students, as well as some with IEP’s concerning reading difficulties can use the tool whenever they find it useful.
