Audience: Academic Staff
Assistive Technologies are technologies used to help learners and teachers, such as text-to-speech functions, changing the text, font sizes and colours to accommodate visual learning needs e.g. Dyslexia as well as any visual impairments and many more aspects.
At Barnet and Southgate College, we have quite a lot of assistive technologies to support you and your learners.
In this session
You will learn how to:
- use Dragon, a text-to-speech tool
- Use a mind mapping software
- perform functions such as enlarging text within a web browser and time permitting, much more.
- Ask Ken about any questions you may have about assistive technologies and how best to support your learners
