Accessible Learning with Mind Maps

Date: 09 June 2020 15:00-16:00 (Dublin, Ireland)
Duration: 60 mins
Traditional teaching/learning tools and methods do not suit all learners in the same way. For students who learn differently because of a disability/learning difficulty, assistive technology can offer great alternatives, allowing those students equal access to their curriculum and enabling them to maximise their potential. In this webinar uses of mind maps in education are outlined. Whilst beneficial for almost all learners, this webinar will focus on mind mapping to meet the needs of students who have dyslexia, dyspraxia/DCD, students who are Deaf/hard of hearing and students with memory, processing or stamina difficulties.
