A big welcome to our two newest Texthelpers as we set up a dedicated Texthelp team for the very first time in Australia! Meet Greg O’Connor and Barbara Landsberg who joined Texthelp at the beginning of June this year and have clocked up a busy first month already.
They bring with them many years of experience in supporting successful use of inclusive learning technologies, as part of the well-known Spectronics team. Along with their years spent working in schools with students who struggle with literacy. They will now be available in Asia Pacific friendly timezones to assist with any enquiries from across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.

This year the EdTechTeam’s California Summit featuring Google for Education will once again take place in Palo Alto, CA. While last year’s summit included well over 1000 attendees, this year looks to be even bigger as it will stretch over two weekends (July 11-12 and July 18-19) in sunny California.
In addition to the jam packed weekend sessions, Texthelp will be hosting our 2nd #GAFEtalk event at the Sheraton Palo Alto on Friday, July 17th. This event gives summit attendees (and other California educators) access to a full day of great content, insightful speakers, free software and even lunch!
