Inclusion through Digital Technologies: Creating inclusive environments for all in the Primary Classroom

Presented by: Michael Lynch

As teachers we support pupils with diverse needs, abilities, backgrounds and experiences.. In this session we will explore practical digital technologies and resources that can engage, motivate and encourage active participation and learning by all pupils. Many of these technologies and resources incorporate the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) which focus on providing learning resources that provide equal opportunities for all pupils to learn, including those with learning difficulties.
