The Team, the Technology and the Teaching with Carol Allen & John Galloway

In this week’s podcast, Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Carol Allen and John Galloway to discuss the team, the technology and the teaching. On a previous podcast, we talked about technology and how it can be used to support SEND. We talked about understanding the tech you already have in your school. In this episode, we then look at the next step. Implementing the technology in your school, the training required, communication and working as a team to use the technology effectively.

We discussed assistive technology on a previous podcast – Low cost, no cost technology. Hopefully people are now realising what they have and what it can do for them. The next step is then identifying how to use this in your school. This is where you have to look at the other factors – the team and the teaching.

So who is in the team?
