New Videos: Inclusive technology playing a vital role in students success
ADCET is excited to be launching a number of wonderful videos that showcase students using technology to support their studies at university. Technology can play a powerful role in improving the access to education for students with disability. These videos show a range of technologies in use and the impact they have had on the student’s success.
ADCET would like to thank the University of Tasmania’s Disability support program, the students and Martin Kelly for making these videos possible.
