ICT and Inclusion Roadshow in Highland

logo-eu.jpg logo-se.jpg

As previously intimated, Highland is hosting one of this year’s ICT & Inclusion Roadshows on Wednesday 28th March, 2007 at Victoria Park, Dingwall. These roadshows are organised by the staff of the CALL Centre at Edinburgh University and supported by SEED.

Paper copies of the programme and booking form are being distributed to schools this week but if you can’t wait – download it from here.

Highland staff should book their places via the CPD Online facility rather than by completing and sending off a paper form. Click here to go to CPD Online.

This event looks really exciting with some 20 companies represented, providing an in-depth look at their hardware and software as well as a range of seminars to show how these might be used.  

Additionally, the ATS Service has arranged three seminars to augment the existing programme of events.

  • Sarah MacAlpine, SfL – Crown & Muirtown Primary Schools, will be looking at how to use core software to support pupils who have English as an Additional Language.
  • Liz Roberts, Development Officer – ATS Service, plans to explore the use of digital photographs and images to provide alternative learning and teaching opportunities for pupils with ASN.
  • Laura Compton, ICT Development Officer – West Lothian Council, will detail a project she instigated in her own area using iPods and audio books for reluctant readers.


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.
