Innovation & Inclusion Through Technology: A HundrED TeachMeet in London
Technology can change lives. Whether by enabling someone to do what would otherwise be impossible – like Stephen Hawking writing his books – or by creating opportunities, and providing the means to build communities and make connections to bring about change.
It can also make a difference to what happens in our classrooms. Putting new tools in the hands of teachers, and providing fresh learning opportunities and ways of engagement for our learners. Many of them improving inclusive practice, whether by giving learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) a means to express themselves, by opening up possibilities for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, or by challenging our perceptions.
We are delighted to invite you to this TeachMeet hosted by HundrED Academy member John Galloway, The London Grid for Learning, and Teach First. It's an opportunity for teachers to share the ways in which technology is changing their classrooms, and to learn about innovative ideas from suppliers and developers wanting to support those changes.
