Microsoft Adds Reading Progress App to Teams
Microsoft has released a free reading fluency app for its remote
remote meeting and collaboration tool, Teams.
The app, Reading
Progress, is designed to enable "students to independently
read aloud, record themselves, and grow their reading skills while
allowing educators to better support students’ progression.
Students share the audio or video recordings of themselves with their
teachers, who can then track the progress, provide feedback, and
discover trends and opportunities for student growth."
Reading Progress provides differentiated instruction capabilities,
AI-assisted assignment review (with automatic detection of student
errors) and dashboards with information about student progress and
Reading Progress is available at no charge. Further
details can be found on Microsoft's education portal.
