Enhancing Academic Outcomes for All Students Using Digital Tools

5 February 2020

This extremely popular 2019NVC session is now being offered as a webinar!

What attendees of this session at the National Conference had to say:

Great practical tips and reminders. Something tangible to implement C Sharp

A light bulb moment! Greg articulated concepts but more importantly the application of existing technology that is simple and easy for teachers to adopt  D Kahler

Great sharing attitude with lots of very cool tools, which benefited from incredible preparation. D Noud

It is a challenge to successfully create learning environments that accommodate, foster and challenge ALL learners, regardless of the barriers that currently exist for them around the literacy demands of vocational education.

How do we embrace and enhance economic and social inclusion for our students on course completion?

This webinar will explore practical strategies using digital tools to ensure that all students, regardless of the barriers that currently exist for them around the literacy demands of vocational education, are actively engaged in their own learning.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Students with diverse learning needs
