Reading Anywhere - Beyond the Classroom
In this Talk-to-the-Experts webinar, Quantum’s Peter Cracknell interviews Mr Jeff Souter, Statewide Advisory Visiting Teacher, Assistive Technologies from the QLD Department of Education about how schools can support students with reading difficulty; particularly addressing assessment adjustments and technology that is approved for use in the classroom.
Jeff also presents findings from the Department of Education’s successful trial of the OrCam in 9 schools across QLD. We also hear from SPELD QLD, who support struggling students directly in the classroom and with extra-curricular engagement. Finally we see video clips of young people using portable reading devices like the OrCam READ - at TAFE, in the community, and at home.
