ATSS Activity in Early 2007

The ATS Service has been involved in supporting a number of schools – and others – throughout January and February.

Two after school sessions at Duncan Forbes School to look at interactive tools for teaching and how Softease can be used to support the primary curriculum.

The Support for Learning Department at Grantown Grammar took part in training on editing digital video footage using ULEAD VideoStudio 10Plus software.

Training in the use of Adobe Captivate 2 software was held in Edinburgh for CALL Centre staff.

Update and information sessions are scheduled for both Tarradale Primary School and Portree Primary School before mid term.

Next year’s CPD Calendar is now being prepared so ensure your school has completed CPD returns and requests. Contact us directly if you have any specific requests.



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.

  1. This was very informative and useful. Do you have plans to carry out training in Adobe Captivate 2 with schools in Inverness? If so I would be very interested. I have had a look at it and it has great possibilities.

  2. It is in our minds to try using tools such as Captivate 2 with Glow mentors who may be able to exemplify and then easily share what they’ve been doing with others. We think this is particularly useful for demonstrating solutions to frequently asked questions but the potential goes much further than simple demonstrations.

    I think it may feature in next year’s CPD Calendar.
