Interactive ICT in the Classroom

From recent visits to schools, discussions with staff, and our own experiences there are a number common issues/concerns relating to financial pressures as well as practical barriers to providing Interactive Whiteboards in classrooms. The ATS Service is offering an opportunity to have a look and ‘play’ with a variety of possible alternatives to better inform the resourcing process.

Interactive ICT Tools for the Classroom

Tuesday 19th & Wednesday 20th December

2 days during which HTs or their representatives can drop in (for an hour or so?) to see and use some of the available tools that may offer better interactivity and allow money to go further.

We can consider:

  • Teaching styles/methods
  •   Set-up/sharing options
  •  Health & Safety issues
  •  Coverage across your school
  • Best value/costs

We hope these days will be of some help to those who have concerns or questions over these issues.



I'm a teacher who changed direction after a spell teaching visually impaired pupils. I became interested in how technology could assist learners overcome or deal with various disabilities. Since 1992 I've been an Education Support Officer, an ICT Training Support Officer, and have been Coordinator of Highland's Assistive Technology Support Service since 1995.
