If the student is in possession of a modern mobile phone, there would be
no need for funding on this one. The phone would be more than capable of
a job of this kind.
What does 'learning resources' pertain to in this instance?
Im curious to know how she feels that this may be useful.

Subject: Request for video camera for note taking and revision.
Any comments of or help would be much appreciated with this one. I have
recently spoken to a student with Dyslexia wishing to make digital
videos of her notes and learning resouces as a revision/ learning
strategy. This is the first time I have been involved with such a
request and even though I'm sceptical I would approciate some input.
The student uses a combination of written notes, mind maps diagrams and
other media for learning and claims that she finds it difficult to keep
track of her resources and often loses them. Her idea is to video her
various notes while giving a commentary so that the video will
essentially provide access to all notes and information in one digital
I am concened from a practical basis that the student has unrealistic
expectations of what can actually be acheived with video as this is just
an idea and the student has no experience in using this technique. At
the moment I have not agreed to funding this through the DSA but in the
interest of keeping an open mind I would be interested in any comments
experience other assessors may have had.
