This is a two-part event, the first part is an online webinar open to the public and second part an invited audience. Both parts will showcase research that students at Fairmead School contributed towards, that provided new and different opportunities for student participation at school either through computer game design or video making.
The Autism Community Research Network @Southampton [ACoRNS] is a research-practice partnership between Education and Psychology at the University, and school leaders and practitioners in the local community. Fairmead School is a school in Somerset for autistic students, and students with moderate learning difficulties. The event will consist of two parts; an online webinar open to the public and an interactive exhibition of student work in school. The webinar will give students an opportunity to present their work and is aimed at an adult audience of researchers and practitioners. The exhibition will involve screenings of videos and displays of student work (including a computer game).
