Collaborative learning and group projects are an important part of a student’s experience inside and outside the classroom. Communicating ideas is at the core of group study, and schools have become increasingly diverse when it comes to languages spoken by its student population. English Language Learners and deaf or hard-of-hearing students require technology that helps them communicate with other students, and the Translator app is a tool that helps break these communication barriers so all students can be a part of the conversation.
Students can start and join conversations between two people or up 100 people, from the mobile app or directly from their browser. If conversations are started from the browser, students can save the transcripts before ending the group chat, and share these transcripts with the group via email.
The Translator app's conversation feature helps English language learners, deaf, or hard-of-hearing students better communicate with one another in class or for one-on-one chats.
Use the microphone or split-screen microphone to translate between two languages using a single device. The split-screen mic can be found by tapping the green microphone button.
Discuss group projects and work together across many languages. Perfect for English language learners and deaf or hard-of-hearing students.
