The pages have been developed and maintained on a voluntary basis by PLUG, the PLASC/NPD users' group. Dr Rebecca Allen at the Institute of Education, University of London, is currently responsible for overseeing this wiki. You can learn more abut how to contribute to the wiki on this page. The site will never be a complete and comprehensive guide to the data because NPD changes as each new sweep of data is released. So, new contributors are always most welcome and should email Rebecca Allen to ask for an invitation to register.Information site about the National Pupil Database, for end users of the data.UKEnglishEducationContinuing Professional Development

70 Inclusion in TechnologyMeetup GroupWe believe that technology should be inclusive of all users. To us technology includes anything from your computer and mobile web based tools, to the digital interface on your fridge, in your home, on your wrist, in your car or where you find information or pay for your goods and services using a digital interface. All of these interfaces will be better if they are designed, created and managed with the broadest set of user needs and differences in perspective and preferences in mind. Even better, understanding users with strong, different to "centre of the normal curve" needs and preferences helps organisations make products that are fundamentally better as they provide adaptability and flexibility in use that we may all appreciate at some point.
