Learning device

The iPad has so many great inbuilt features which are useful for students with special learning needs and to individualise learning for all students.

These workshops will explore those features plus a range of apps and ways of developing workflow procedures.

Seats are limited so book now.

 

I am fresh from presenting a similar workshop at the Australian Assistive Technology Conference. Feedback from participants was very positive. I’m also excited to announce that my application to become an Apple Professional Learning Specialist was successful. I believe that there are only about 12 members of the Apple Consultants Network across Australia and New Zealand who have been recognised as having the appropriate experience and knowledge to earn this title. I am still an independent consultant. This is an acknowledgement from Apple of my abilities to work at an in depth level with their technology and within the Australian education context.
