Autism and Technology Enhanced Learning

Do new technologies transform or enhance teaching and learning? This is the question discussed by Paul Prinsloo in his interesting blog post .

Next week (Tuesday Nov 1st), as part of the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) festival week, Karen Guldberg from the Autism Centre for Education and Research, School of Education, University of Birmingham in collaboration with Head Teacher Ian Lowe (Topcliffe Primary School), Sarah Parsons (University of Southampton) and Wendy Keay-Bright (Cardiff School of Art and Design) will work with pupils, parents and teachers to showcase innovative and interactive technologies that have been developed for children on the autism spectrum.

These technologies can support children on the autism spectrum in developing their social skills. They have the potential to both enhance and transform the teaching and learning of all who work with them.

For further information, see the event website – Playing and Learning with Innovative Technologies.  Further videos and information will be added to the website following the event on November 1st.
