Thank you. This is first nugget from the ACCESSIBILITY unit, and already an eye-opener for me and my organisation. We have some work to do with the forthcoming change in law, but quite rightly so!

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): Teaching Strategies
Thought-provoking, but also makes you feel that you are on the right track.
What is assistive technology?
Mind blowing! The key notes are really useful but it is the additional links that are so useful.

It would be super helpful if there were a definitive list for 'starters' to get stated with.
Best thing from this is that assistive technology used well will support everyone and not subconsciously label learners with a disability or learning as ‘different’.
