Keep using the tablets!

Guest post from Margie Woodward, Empowerment officer at Scope.

Scope has run a pilot of 10 communication groups within all regions North, South, East and West during 2013 to enable us to communicate with disabled people in our services on matters concerning  policies and procedures, Scope’s strategic direction and future campaigns.

We also wanted individuals to try for themselves communication applications, leisure activities, networking abilities and generally experiment with technology.

The iPad may not be accessible to all our service users but it is a start, to break down the barriers and to show disabled people in our services how such devices can change their lives.

Use of Pinterest

To share apps and other technology that might be useful and of interest to disabled people, we’ve created a couple of Pinterest groups on assistive technology and apps for leisure.

Let us know your favourites – we can all learn from each other!
