Description

ESRC Festival of Social Science 2012

Using innovative technologies in the Classroom

Following last year’s successful event, you are invited to join us at Topcliffe Primary School for a day of hands-on experience on using innovative technologies for children with autism in the classroom. Researchers will present work undertaken in five different schools. The process of digital story creation and our web portal will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to get involved in workshops and discussions with staff, children and researchers. During the event, the team will also showcase work undertaken with Aldebaran robotics who are world leaders in the development of a humanoid robot. Topcliffe have hosted two robots in their classrooms since March 2012.

Come and join us to have a go with the technologies, participate in workshops and give us your feedback!

Further information on the technologies may be found on the SHAPE webpages www.birmingham.ac.uk/shape
