Harnessing IT for Academic Success (*NB – Please note change of date*)
Speaker: Caroline Bateman, Learning Technology Consultant
Dyslexic children and others that struggle at school are often extremely bright, yet they underachieve academically, because they are not taught the way they learn.
Technology is now available to transform learning.
Find out more about the vast range of apps and IT solutions that can radically boost both confidence and attainment.
Caroline Bateman brings her professional, and personal dyslexia experience together in this interactive workshop. All three of her children were failing at school until Caroline gave up her career in the IT industry to help them. Now they are all totally exceeding expectations.
Inspired by their success, and alarmed that many schools were not utilising basic technology, Caroline started running after-school clubs to help improve attainment. This enabled her to further develop techniques to help many learners. Concerned that numerous students are struggling needlessly, she welcomes any opportunity to teach students, parents and educational professionals, wanting all to achieve their true potential.
