Tech giant Google unveiled a range of new features aimed at boosting accessibility and interactive learning during the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) exhibition.
These features will advance education technology and make classroom experiences more dynamic and inclusive.
The latest educational tools offer an expanded reading mode, integration with sign language interpreters in Google Meet, and an exciting AI-driven question suggestion feature for classes.
These advancements align with Google’s ongoing experiment with AI tools in its mainstream products, including Search, Gmail, and Sheets.
In a forward-looking move, Google will introduce AI-driven questions linked to YouTube video assignments. This feature offers teachers the flexibility to add personalized questions or alter AI-generated suggestions.
Meanwhile, Google is inviting applications to test this feature in English, and it promises future support for Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Malay.
Earlier in March, Google launched the Reading Mode in a side panel, an innovative feature that helps learners concentrate on textual content by eliminating distractive elements like images and videos. This feature, initially available solely for ChromeOS on Chrome browsers, is set to extend to all Chrome users soon.
