ADCET Webinar: How Ideamapper helps students of varying abilities plan, write and reference

Event Details
Zoom webinar
21 July 2020

Ideamapper was originally created as a solution for students with specific Learning Disabilities who struggled to write large amounts of text such as essays and reports. It was designed by PHDs and a Dyslexia expert with an MBE for services to Dyslexia and other hidden disabilities. Ideamapper uses mind mapping to help students manage information in a bitesize format, helping unlock ideas otherwise lost in a jumble of information. A vast array of templates and writing frames are included to help students get started with their essays and to more effectively manage the structure of their writing tasks.

Ideamapper will soon be fully AT compliant with accessibility standards and will be compatible with screenreaders (including JAWS) and Dragon.

This webinar will be of interest to equity and accessibility practitioners and study skills tutors. Ideamapper is currently offering free pilots to universities and TAFEs for the remainder of the 2020 academic year to allow all students to have access to an effective mind mapping technology during these challenging times of COVID 19.
