An introduction to technologies to support neurodivergent learners


14th March, 2024 (4:00pm - 5:00pm)

£30 per individual.

60 minute Online Learning workshop.

Where do you start with embedding technology to best support your neurodiverse learners in a learning environment where technologies are ever evolving?

Neurodiverse learners may interpret, interact with, and experience the world in unique ways. The concept of neurodiversity in the classroom means that we as educators need to think about how our learners may learn and think differently from others. We need to be equipped to teach in engaging and motivating ways whilst meeting the needs of our learners.

During this course Kirsteen will look at a range of Assistive Technology tools that can best support all learners.
