It’s vital that you have the right tech in place to support your students with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND)
At BT, we’re passionate about helping to remove barriers to learning for students and ensuring that every student gets the same opportunities for learning. Modern technology has provided us with the means to do this, even enabling students to take part in lessons and activities which previously would have been impossible for them. From the conversations we’ve been having with our education customers, we’ve found that they appear to be fully clued up on assistive technology which helps students work around their disabilities and assists them in everyday life, such as hearing devices. However, we’ve also found that they’re less aware of technology which helps students with learning difficulties, or attention and behaviour disorders, to improve their learning and increase engagement. So, we decided to do something about it and set about raising awareness within schools about how technology can help.
