The Inclusive Learning Technologies Conference returns in 2012 and planning is already well underway! At the Inclusive Learning Technologies® Conference in May 2010 we had 700 delegates join us at the Marriott Surfers Paradise for four intensive days of motivating and inspirational workshops and presentations. The Inclusive Learning Technologies® Conference 2012 is already shaping up to be bigger and better so we have booked a MUCH bigger venue (still on Queensland's Gold Coast) to ensure everyone has room to move, and is able to attend their preferred sessions!
Hosted by Spectronics, the conference focuses specifically on "inclusive learning technologies" - technologies designed to advance independent achievement for people with disabilities and/or students with learning difficulties. It includes sessions looking at these technologies in the following three interest streams.
* Struggling Students*
* People with Complex Communication Needs
* People with Disabilities
*What do we mean by "struggling students"? Here we are talking about students who are in Regular Ed settings but are struggling to keep up with the reading, writing or organisational tasks required of them. These students may be struggling because of learning difficulties. Alternatively, they could be one of the growing number of ESL (English as a Second Language) students in our schools and post-secondary institutions.
