Did you know there are apps to help with focus? Note-taking? Organisation? As a disability and technology charity AbilityNet keeps up-to-date with the latest apps, software and assistive tech, which allows us to offer advice and make recommendations.

In this webinar, Lizi Green from AbilityNet will identify some of the common barriers to learning encountered by students and will share the free and low cost technology we recommend for helping students (and anyone else) to overcome these challenges.

This webinar will contain useful information for Disability Service Managers and Advisers, university library and IT staff, and anyone else working for an education service provider in a student-facing role. It would also be beneficial for students themselves, and anyone with a professional interest in assistive technology.

The webinar will last 1 hour and includes a question and answer session. Those that register for the webinar will receive a recording, even if unable to attend live.
