Me! Conference

Thursday 18th and Friday 19th January 2007
The Multimedia and E-Learning conference is taking place at the RIX Centre in the University of East London. It’s a two day participatory event focussing on inclusion for people with learning difficulties through the use of multimedia technology for information, advocay and learning.

The event will bring together people with learning disabilities, their social carers and teachers, alongside multimedia developers, policy makers and researchers.

I’m giving a talk in the morning of the first day on the use and benefits of assistive technology. In the afternoon I’m running an exciting workshop where attendees will be able to get some hands-on experience of the sorts of activities that AT makes accessible to people with a range of physical and cognitive difficulties.

Tickets can be booked online.

The RIX Centre,
