We’re pleased to be welcoming Caroline Bateman of Achieve Now back to our next Support Group meeting on 25th March at 7pm here at the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.
Caroline will be speaking to the group about technology to improve the quality of written work.
To be assessed, students need to produce written work. This can take the form of homework, classwork or formal examinations.
If dyslexic students receive poor grades despite working hard it's extremely discouraging. If this continues over time it can result in students giving up on ever achieving academically.
Using wideley available often free technology to produce written work can quickly and easily help students achieve better marks. This has a knock on impact on students confidence and attainment levels in formal exams.
This workshop will cover a number of solutions, many of which are available for no charge at all. It will also warn against using this technology in certain circumstances.
If you would like to attend the support group please email [email protected] for more details.
Caroline Bateman brings her professional, and personal dyslexia experience together in this workshop. All three of her children were failing at school until Caroline gave up her career in the IT industry to help them. Inspired by their success, Caroline started running after-school clubs to help improve attainment using technology. This enabled her to further develop techniques to empower 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.
