Event description

Description

Increasingly technology is being incorporated into the curricula with mobile devices in almost all classrooms across Australia. The implementation of these technologies facilitate skill acquisition across a range of learning styles and will have far reaching benefits for students in their future careers.

Students with autism often show a keen interest in, and respond positively to, technology including chat bots, tablet based communication devices and robots. These technologies open the door towards new approaches to education and learning.

CSIRO is working with the wider autism community to understand the roles that innovative technology can play during successive stages of childhood development inside the home, in the classroom, and during extracurricular activities, with a focus on social participation.

In collaboration with the Autism Hub, and with your help, this inaugural Think Tank will explore the directions for the future of technology-supported education to create better outcomes for students with autism and the wider autism community.
