My name is James Winchester and I have worked as a teacher in a generic special secondary school, teaching a range of subjects to MLD, SLD and complex needs students. My main subject is ICT/Computing and I enjoy looking at ways to make the curriculum accessible for all learners. I have a particular interest in how technology can aid all learners to reach their potential with a particular emphasis on the Gesture-Based Technology.
I am now Assistant Headteacher in the same and I enjoy the challenge of playing a integral role in leading the college in ensuring that the young people who attend have the opportunities to achieve to their potential.
The purpose of this blog is to share some of the ideas and technology I have used in the classroom and give my view on them – I will also be sharing the some of the excellent work that is happening in my school.
Hope you find it interesting and useful and would appreciate any comments and feedback.
