Some of you may have caught our students talking eloquently and confidently about technology on the ‘In Touch’ programme a couple of weeks ago. They were interviewed about their use of technology as part of the opening of our Innovation Hub. This is a classroom which has been fully equipped with state of the art technology, designed to encourage staff and students alike to explore creative ways of using technology as a learning tool. We are grateful to Fujitsu and partners for sponsoring the Innovation Hub.

As well as the Innovation Hub, we have also welcomed three technology companies to NCW this term, to demonstrate what new products are on the market for VI learners. It has been wonderful to hear the calls of ‘are we really going to get some of this equipment?’ from our students, as they find their way around the new technology with remarkable ease. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be making some decisions about what products are the most suitable for our young people and how we can best employ them within departments.

I’ll look forward to updating you when we know more.
