21 Ideas4Life … and beyond Help us to pilot the software As it's a new programme, it is likely to have bugs and errors we haven't found yet It features mainly students with moderate to severe learning difficulties – and symbols – do these work for other students? Is it asking the right questions? Does it need to be customisable?...etc. By being a part of the pilot phase, you and your students can help us to improve, develop and refine the tool. Once it has been thoroughly tested and piloted, it can then be taken to a wider audience.
