Today, I fly in readiness for a two-day conference in the Lebanon. I am one of the speakers at the conference and the aim is to raise awareness of Assistive Technology in the Lebanon. I am honoured and excited to be asked to do this. It fulfills a tick on my personal bucket list – international speaking! I have never done this before so it will be a first for me. The purpose of the conference is to showcase new and innovative ideas and how to exploit the power of technology to support and engage students and those in education.
