Introducing Anthony Rhys

I'm Anthony, ICT Co-ordinator and teacher of a class of pupil with Permanent and Multiple Disabilities at Trinity Fields School in Ystrad Mynach.

We are a 3-19 school for pupils with severe learning disabilities (SLD), which means all of our pupils are working well below their expected chronological age.

I specialise in using new and emerging technologies at school and the school had Sector Leading Practice for this in our last Estyn inspection in 2013.

I head a professional learning community (PLC) that looks at using gesture based technology with pupils with SLD.  We use and advise special schools worldwide on the use of Kinect, iPads, eyegaze and eyetracking technology, Leap Motion, Oculus Rift etc.

The blog entrance site to the wiki is here:

I also paint in my spare time, which has nothing to do with technology- because we all need that balance....

  1. Wow - what a fantastic use of technology! I would love to learn more about these approaches. I support two of the social communication classes in Caerphilly and expect that some of this technology would be extremely beneficial for some of these pupils.
