Necessary for some, useful for all: The benefits of universal support

Festival of Inclusive Education: On Demand

Session details & slides

  • In this panel discussion we're covering a really important topic: how technology can make education better for everyone. Our panel of experienced educators will share the tools they use to help students learn, and how they embed these tools across their whole school to help all students, not just a few. They'll talk about tools like Read&Write and Equatio that can help everyone learn. And finally, they’ll share some really good advice for other teachers who want to increase their use of technology to help students learn.

  • Emil Zankov is a visionary leader in the field of education, currently serving as the Leader of Innovation and Enterprise at Pedare Christian College.

    Susan Ward is an experienced school leader who has worked with schools and settings over many years to support thoughtful, creative and sustainable approaches to using digital tools to enrich learning.
