I'm a TA doing a part time degree in education. I have a large assignment due in tomorrow and I've just realised I've missed a part out. For this part I need to talk about how I can improve a learning resource and use it within the classroom.
So my question to you all is, if you could improve any learning resource you use, how would you? I work in secondary but primary based would be fine as I work occasionally with MLD classes.
My mind is totally blank and I need a tad of inspiration.

Thankyou so much in advance

Wipe clean writing frames for practicing spellings.
Dyslexia friendly whiteboards:an overlay attached or the actual board in blue/green.

I'm FE

I'd install the font 'lexia' on every computer used in schools - it is designed so dyslexics can read it but it is easy for anyone to read.

At the moment I can produce resources at home but not in work, if I want them to be printed at work then I need to save them as pdf files not word, which means if I spot an error I can;t correct it.

Also the whiteboards would have a coloured background - can easily be done if you have admin rights but teachers don't usually have that. My own computer has a blue background for anything I'm typing such as this - but it will appear on white for you to read unless you have your own settings.

White is the worst background for anyone who is dyslexic or VI.

Once this is set up it can be used as the default and increases access for many children and teachers.

yy re blue background - my default for all my slides is this (use powerpoint). Have not yet converted to lexia, all mine are in ComicSans, which used to be the best for accessibility.
