Event description
Levelling the playing field in education through Assistive Technology (AT)

About this Event

This year we are celebrating Assistive Technology (AT) in the South and North of England because the ACE Centre and New Bridge Academy will also be holding a Communication Works event in Oldham (North). At both events attendees can find out about how education and technology can work together through Assistive Technology, Communication Tools, Digital Strategies and Person-Centred Planning. There will be a diverse selection of AT companies showcasing and speaking about their products plus seminars* and a panel of AT users including youtube influencer Abdi Omar.

A key event to learn about the use of innovative technology to enable new independence in learning and communicating and assist with identifying the technology that can best suit the individual needs of our students. All part of the aims for the Governments EdTech Strategy in levelling the playing field for people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Guest Speaker: Toby Hewson, founder of Just Different | Toby founded JustDifferent in 2008. His primary work aim is to help people to understand disability and difference so that people can work and socialise together and participate fully in society.

Anna Reeves CEO ACE Centre, recently said in their January 2020 newsletter:

For over a decade, Communication Works (the education focused AT conference-expo) has been bringing together educational and communication insights, student-user experiences and the country’s largest ‘hands-on’ showcase of AT technology and equipment.

Celebrating the positive and empowering impact of AT, communication tools, digital strategies and creativity tech within education, it is hosted within a school with students playing the central role. Now, we’re helping to bring ‘Communication Works’ success and innovation to the North! We’re delighted to be partnering with CENMAC to stage Communication Works 2020.
