The ATS Service delivered training to the special unit in Thurso High School on Clicker 4 software on the Tuesday November closure day. Teachers and Learning Support Auxiliaries joined together to spend a whole day learning the software and how to apply it to their students. As well as looking at the software consideration was given to the pupils’ access methods as some of them use switches to control the computer rather than through mouse and keyboard.

Trainer: Liz Roberts, Development Officer ATS Service liz.roberts@highland.gov.uk
