The BBC recently published an article about technology in schools, and whether our country’s kids are being bombarded with it, when it may not even be useful to them! With this in mind, I thought I’d write a blog on disabled people’s technology at University, both when the technology given is helpful – and when it really isn’t!
My experience of University is that anywhere that you want to study in is going to be busy and the library is one of the most difficult places to navigate and use at the best of times. There are always streams of students printing off essays, discussing group work, and eating the odd snack whilst finishing off their out-of-lectures reading! But what about when you’ve got a disability? Although every University library is different, I decided to write a little bit about mine and provide some access improvements of my own!
For many young people all over the UK, starting University is a huge milestone towards gaining their independence and starting life on their own. I thought that now might be a good time to write a blog about how University life has been for me as a student with a disability and how technology is helping me.
