Notes on video

In this clip, the obviously high quality and sometimes very specific, tailored technology, seems to ‘disappear’, as the learning, through engagement and fun, by the children and students, is viewed.

Note

  • Use of video in staff training
  • Promoting independence through the use of appropriate input devices such as IWB, touch screen, iPads and eye gaze
  • Using technology to give the children a voice (AAC)
  • Taking technology out into the community
