MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
My name is Grant Chaney and I am a student at the University of Bedfordshire in which I am studying on the BA Hons Education Studies. I have a keen interest in ICT and the different technologies that can be used in the teaching of other subject areas. I believe it to important that schools are moving forward in the technologies that they are using in their teaching. Schools should now be looking at using the technologies that students already have available to them. Along with having a keen interest in ICT and technologies I also have a keen interest in SEN which is key issue in schools at the moment with the new Green paper being released last year. When looking at SEN there are so many technologies already available to support children who have SEN or Disabilities though many schools will not look at the most recent forms of technologies such as ipads and ipods which can be extremely useful for those students who have difficulties with motor skills, as they touch screen and only requires them to move their fingers over the screen to enable it to work. If schools use these different types of resources available to them and use technology to it full potential then they can have massive impact on children education and potential their lifestyle.
