How can technology transform learning?
Our education system relies on students being able to:
Read to gain knowledge
Write to express what they have learned
Be assessed by recalling and writing under time pressure
As a result, anyone struggling with literacy, is automatically at a disadvantage across the whole curriculum.
Literacy is not the same as intelligence
Schools often confuse literacy for intelligence. Dyslexics, despite often being extremely bright, frequently believe they are stupid and give up on education. As a result, talent goes unrecognised and individuals do not achieve their potential.
There are numerous examples of talented dyslexics who struggled profoundly at school but went on to live extraordinary lives. Take a look at our encouraging videos.
“IF A CHILD CANNOT LEARN THE WAY WE TEACH,
MAYBE WE SHOULD TEACH THE WAY THEY LEARN”
Technology enables students to learn and progress without being restricted by their difficulties with reading and spelling. This applies from early years education, to students studying at university and beyond in the workplace.
This is a list of the areas where we use technology to aid learning.
The list above details all the areas where technology can help, but for each area listed there are often many, many different soltuions.
Which solution is best?
Which solution is the best one for an individual or school depend on many factors. For example:
