Please also contact us to organise a webinar for your team on a subject of your choosing. We can also tailor sessions at a time of your choosing and can develop highly customised training opportunities to meet your particular needs.

 

 

Lectures/Presentations

 

In 2013, Quantum staff have delivered talks and given presentations on 54 separate occasions; more than one a week! We talk to a wide range of groups and organisations on a variety of subjects. The majority of these sessions are educational and not product focussed. If you have a group that would benefit from a general talk around the use of technology to assist people with print disabilities, please give us a call.

 

The need for on-going professional development to keep teachers current is often not matched by a PD and training budget! Therefore Quantum provides these talks and presentations at no charge.

One on One

 

Jaws and Braille Training. In person or on-line.

 

With so many options now for on-line training (we are using Skype, Go-to-Meeting, Talking Communities), there are plenty of opportunities to provide localised and detailed instructional training. These on-line trainings can be suitable for students while they work on their own devices, and they can be scheduled for any time of day at school or at home. One-on-one training can also be suitable for small groups (ideally 2-3 people).

And for our final word on training, here are a few good ones from Mark Twain;

 

“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.”
