Australian not-for-profit, Conexu Foundation, has developed a free resource guide for teachers aimed at students who are Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, entitled ‘11 easy to use technologies to enhance learning in your classroom'.

Front cover of the teacher resource with the words ‘Download Now!’

The new resource has been designed for teachers in mainstream public, Catholic and private schools where children with these disabilities attend, and allows educators to find the latest on relevant communication technology.

It’s featured on the Techfinder central web portal, which provides information on technology, for all stages of life, with helpful product reviews, easy How-to guides, handy hints, and tips & stories, plus Auslan translation and captions are available.

As there are so many different options now available, technology can sometimes feel overwhelming, particularly for teachers of large class sizes. This is why this new resource for teachers was created, in order to offer them a practical guide for how technology can be used to help improve learning outcomes and accessibility for Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired students in primary and secondary schools.

You can freely download the technology classroom guide which is a must-have for teachers of the Deaf.
