Inclusive Learning with New Media and iPads

Atempo, a member of the EASPD UMO Die Steirische Behindertenhilfe, is organising a course on for professionals and educators working with people with Special Educational Needs (SEN). It will take place in January 2014.
 

Background:

Today’s internet society shapes the way we interact and communicate with each other. Knowing how to participate and “navigate” in this new digital world determines whether you take part in society or not.
This development poses a challenge – especially for people with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Yet, it also offers new possibilities in terms of learning, self-expression and (digital) inclusion. At atempo we experience daily that people with SEN are not afraid of using these new technologies – what is crucial is that they are given the chance to use them and get the support they need.
Objectives:

  •     Training teachers and staff working in the field of education of people with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  •     Raising digital awareness as well as teaching skills in using tablets and new media to promote SEN learning
  •     Exploring new ways in which tablets and new media can help develop communication and self-expression for learners with SEN and enable them to engage in the digital society and participate more actively in their communities
Location:

atempo, Heinrichstr. 145, 8010 Graz, Austria
