Hosted by Spectronics, the conference focuses specifically on “inclusive learning technologies” – technologies designed to advance independent achievement for people with disabilities and/or students with learning difficulties. It includes sessions looking at these technologies in the following three interest streams.
- Struggling Students*
- People with Complex Communication Needs
- People with Disabilities
*What do we mean by “struggling students”? Here we are talking about students who are in Regular Ed settings but are struggling to keep up with the reading, writing or organisational tasks required of them. These students may be struggling because of learning difficulties. Alternatively, they could be one of the growing number of ESL (English as a Second Language) students in our schools and post-secondary institutions.
We have booked the Pavilion Convention Centre at Jupiters Gold Coast Hotel for the event and have confirmed two excellent International Keynote Presenters – Linda Burkhart and Joy Zabala. More information about their extensive experience in the world of applying inclusive learning technologies can be found on the conference website at www.spectronicsinoz.com/conference/2012
When: 22nd - 25th May 2012
Where: Jupiters Gold Coast Hotel, Queensland, Australia
