Introducing Helen Caldwell
Our SEN portal manager is Helen Caldwell, an educator who has worked at every level, from university lecturer to LA advisor to classroom practitioner. She currently splits her time between Northampton University and her advisory role for ICT and SEN in Milton Keynes.
The constant threads running through her work are SEN and the use of ICT to support teachers and learners.
The SEN portal will focus on practical help for classroom practitioners through sharing ideas, looking at what works and exploring affordable, often free, tools for supporting children. We will try and offer something of interest to everyone, and bring ideas and opinions for them to consider and adapt to their needs. News, views, practical ideas! That is the SEN portal in a nutshell.
Have you thought of using a visual neutral net-style dictionary to support literacy? How about using augmented reality to interact with 3D science resources or inaccessible artworks? And are you taking advantage of the wide range of free apps available to support learning?
Our ever-expanding collection of video guides show how a whole variety of resources can be used to support learning & teaching.
Looking for a quick fix? Something different to spice up a lesson? Access a huge library of speech-enabled, switch-accessible, beautifully illustrated books; download a free text-to-speech tool, or find a themed writing template to enable pupils to produce an attractive page of writing.
