MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have been teaching young adults with Learning Disabilities for 10 years, specialising in numeracy and ICT. My current focus has been to incorporate ICT learning tools, such as interactive white boards, PowerPoint and visual learning environments, to develop kinaesthetic learning for this student group.
I have participated in joint projects with other organisations (mainstream schools and NHS departments) where my student group have been empowered to offer their personal contributions in the role of specialist consultants on Learning Disabilities. This process empowered the young adults with Learning Disabilities, as they gave critical and constructive feedback on educational activities and games, which other groups had designed for people with Learning Disabilities. The amended activities and games were distributed to a wider student group once the recommendations had been made, and the students could use the activities and games independently.
I am interested in furthering my understanding of, and skills in, creating resources for my students to be active participants in developing learning tools and projects which benefit themselves, and other students with Learning Disabilities, both at college and within their every day lives, focussing heavily upon a student-centred approach to learning.
