Accessibility for all #WomenEdTech

Carol Allen's words are ringing in my ears from this #EdTech Show from last year hosted by Bukky Yusuf.  All technology assists us, makes things easier, that's why we use it.  Some technology, though, is essential for some users. For example, text to speech software...

Careers awareness in primary schools: Putting the ‘Ed’ in #EdTech. #WomenEdTech

Being 10% Braver: #IAmWriting.

by Vivienne Porritt @ViviennePorritt

We started WomenEd because women's voices on twitter were often silenced, harrassed or our views were not valued. It's one of the reasons we included a mic in our logo. So we encouraged women to tweet and to write blogs to tell our stories and share our lived experience.

And we are delighted to share more opportunities for our community to write and to be heard.
