Bookshare with an iPad:

**Before books can be loaded onto an iPad, the student must be a Bookshare Member.

  • Bookshare memberships are free to students with qualifying print disabilities.
  • Bookshare Sponsors can add students as members. To become a Sponsor, email Marika Wong at mwong@seattleschools.org or Pat Delaney at pjdelaney@seattleschools.org. Once you receive an email from Bookshare to complete your account, create a username (your SPS email) and a password.
  • There are Institutional Memberships and Individual Memberships
    • Institutional Memberships allow teachers to download textbooks in addition to all the other books available on Bookshare.
    • Individual Memberships allow students to download books, but not textbooks.

Once a teacher is a Sponsor, they can add a student as a Member.

To add a student:

  1. The teacher will go to the bookshare.org, and log on, using their email and password.
  2. Once logged in, click “My Account.”
  3. On the left side of the screen, click “My Bookshare.”
  4. Under “Seattle School District” choose “add or update members.”
  5. On the “Manage Members” page, you will see the entire list of SPS students who have been signed up for Bookshare. Before adding a new student, check the list to see if the student is already enrolled. Save time by filtering for your school, so you only see students at your school who are currently enrolled in Bookshare.
  6. Scroll to the very bottom of the list and select “add a member” to enroll a new student.
  7. In the pop-up window, complete the information for the student.
  8. Select “save and add individual membership.”
    1. If the “save and add individual membership” doesn’t appear, go back to the member list, select the pencil to “edit” and then choose “add individual membership.”
  9. An additional window will pop-up asking for parent email information. The Individual membership will allow students to be able to access Bookshare books (not textbooks) independently, but parents first need to complete the forms that Bookshare sends them. The parent will create a student username and password for the Individual account Bookshare login. This allows students/families to add Bookshare books to their reading app (Read2Go or Voice Dream Reader, for example).

Students who are Bookshare members can have books downloaded to a computer, an iPad, or other tablet. The Bookshare website shows how to download a reading tool to read Bookshare books.

For reading books on an iPad:

To download books using Read2Go, please do the following:

  1. Open Read2Go.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Sign In.
  4. Enter your Bookshare login email and password.
  5. Select Search.
  6. Enter a book title, author, or ISBN in the search field. Or Browse using the given categories.
  7. Select a book by tapping on the book title.
  8. Select Download. Organizational members will need to select a student.
  9. Select Yes to open the book.
  10. Press Play to read the book.

To download books using Voice Dream Reader, please do the following:

  1. Open Voice Dream Reader
  2. In the upper left corner, tap “+”
  3. Choose “more”
  4. Turn Bookshare button “on.”
  5. Enter username and password (either teacher or student).
  6. Turn “prefer images” on.
  7. In the search window, search for a book.
  8. Choose student name to download book.
  9. After the book(s) are downloaded, select “+” again, select “more” again, and turn Bookshare “off.” This effectively logs the teacher out.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • To display books with images, you will need to set “Display Images” to on, under the Visual Settings
  • Important: If you’re downloading a book on behalf of a student through your organizational account, be sure and log out of your account before handing the device to the student, for security reasons

To read Bookshare books on a computer, please visit the Bookshare website for other reading tools and instructions on how to download and use them.

Using Office Lens on an iPad

Open the Office Lens app.

Fist time users will need to allow the app to access the camera—choose “OK.”

  1. Pick the iPad up, separating it from the keyboard (if applicable), and have the document on a well-lit flat surface.
  2. Hold the iPad over the document, with the “home” button on the iPad oriented towards your belly button.
  3. Stand up, in order to capture the entire page, holding the iPad flat and steady.
  4. When the blue box is framing the entire document, tap the white button, to take the picture.
  5. Determine whether the picture is clear and free of other items in the photo. Discard a bad photo by pressing the back arrow in the upper left corner.
  6. If needed, move items away from the area, so only the document is in the photo, and retake the picture.
  7. Office Lens will automatically capture, correct lighting, and straighten the photo.

**For students with motor challenges or for younger students, teachers/staff should take these photos ahead of time, or upload documents directly to the student’s OneDrive.

Once the photo is taken, you can either add more photos for multi-page documents, or select “done.”

In the “Export to” window, select “Word.” The file then uploads to OneDrive.

Once it has transferred, tap on the document, and it will open in Word.

It can now have text entered, read aloud, and edited.

Enter text: In the “home” tab, a cursor will appear. Just tap where you want to add text, and you can type in answers. If the document has graphics, there may be challenges getting the text entered in exactly the right location, because text can’t be added over a graphic.

Read aloud: In the “review” tab, select the “A” with the sound waves. The text will be read aloud from wherever the cursor is positioned. In the lower corner of the page, start, stop, rewind, advance, and settings are available. The setting gives adjustment in speech rate.

Highlight, draw, etc.: In the “draw” tab, there are options for other types of marking on the document.

When completed, select the “share” button in the upper right corner to send to a teacher. Select “invite people” and type the teacher’s email address, then “send.”

Sharing OneDrive Documents

Students signed into their school OneDrive can share documents with teachers via an iPad or computer.

On an iPad or computer:

*** Make sure the student is signed in to their school OneDrive account***

  • On the iPad, open the OneDrive app, and sign in. The student login looks like this:
    • 1(first initial, middle initial, last name) @seattleschools.org (For example: 1mmwong@seattleschools.org)

Then, have the student open a document they wish to send to the teacher.

In the upper right corner, select the share/send button (a box with an arrow out).

Tap “invite people” and then type in the teacher’s email address.

Then tap “send” in the upper right corner of that window.

Students can also share documents with other students, using their school login (see above) as their “email address.” This allows students to collaborate on documents, presentations, etc.

Student Office 365 Logins

Every student in Seattle Public Schools has a login for saving to OneDrive. Teachers can access their student’s login information in PowerSchool.

Once signed in to PowerSchool, type the last name of the student, then find the student in the search results. Next, in the left column, choose “student email.” It will show the student’s username.

Typically, this will be a 1 then the student’s first and middle initials and last name @seattleschools.org. For example, Ruby Lynn Ditmore at Eckstein Middle School will be 1rlditmore@seattleschools.org.

Sometimes, when students have longer names, no middle name, or there are duplicates, there may be another login.

The password, by default, is set to the student’s birthday, in the format MMDDYYYY.

If there are any problems with retrieving passwords or usernames, please contact your school librarian or tech support person—Assistive Technology is unable to troubleshoot these issues.

Communication AT Tools How To

Communication Device Supports

How To Have Your Talker Ready for Learning

Charging

  1. Charge the iPad with the white cord
  2. If you have an i-Adapter case, charge it with the black cord.

Using Guided Access

  1. Open the communication app
  2. Make sure Guided Access is turned ON for your child to use the talker to communicate

How to Turn Guided Access On and Off

Turn On

  1. Triple click the iPad ‘home’ button 
  2. Press Start in the upper right hand corner of the screen

Turn Off

  1. Triple click the iPad ‘home’ button 
  2. Enter the Guided Access passcode
  3. If you don’t know the passcode, ask your teacher or SLP
  4. Press End in the upper left hand corner of the screen

Volume

Adjust the iPad volume using the two buttons on the side

If you have an i-Adapter case: 

  1. Turn on case speaker 
  2. Turn off Guided Access
  3. Swipe down from the top right corner to open the control center
  4. Use the volume slider

Set Up For Communicating

  • Place the talker in front of student so they can see and touch it 

Manage Your Expectations

  • Students are not “fluent’ in the use of their device when it is first introduced. They may not talk in sentences or even their current language level using the device right away. It will take time for them to understand where vocabulary is stored in the system and how to use it in a meaningful way with others.
  • In the early stages, you may see your student explore the device or babble, which may look like play. Your student may hit the same button over and over or create nonsense sentences. This is normal. Over time, students learn to use their talkers through purposeful interactions with others.

The Importance of Modeling

  • Students need to be shown how to use the device before they are expected to use it to communicate with others. Modeling helps your student learn the words on their device and increase their language.
  • Modeling in when parents, teachers, or other communication partners say words on the student’s device as they are speaking when they interact with the student.
  • Modeling may feel clumsy at first, but will become more natural the more you do it. 
  • Model at their language level or one word up. For example, if your student uses two words at a time, you would model two or three word phrases on the talker.

Provide Wait Time

  • When your student has an opportunity to answer a question or make a comment using their talker, pause and wait for 10 to 20 seconds.
  • Be quiet while waiting. It can help to count in your head.
  • Wait time is important because your student needs to be able to understand the question, think about the answer, and find the words they need.

Incorporate the Talker Into Daily Routines

  • Tie the use of the talker to the goals you have for your student. Use it within the activities and tasks you do day-in and day-out. For example: reading, play, math, snack time.
  • Familiarize yourself with your student’s communication goals from their IEP
  • Consult with your SLP and other IEP team members for more specific ideas.
  • Provide consistent access, do not take the talker away!

Accept and Respond to ALL Communication

  • Respond to all student-initiated communication, in any form — for example: gestures, spoken words, or words on their talker.
  • When we accept ALL communication we are showing students that their voices matter!

Have Fun! – Students learn best when engaged in positive social interactions.
