Highland & Moray teachers and therapists gather for ICT & Inclusion event

Over 100 teachers, occupational therapists, and speech & language therapists from Highland and Moray attended the ICT & Inclusion Roadshow at Victoria Park, Dingwall on Wednesday 28th March. This SEED funded and CALL Centre organised event has always proved popular and this year’s event was the best ever. Some twenty exhibitors displayed and demonstrated a wide range of hardware and software to support pupils with additional support needs. Well-attended seminars ran throughout the day focusing on literacy issues, communication, photojournalism, Books for All, visual impairment, and physical access. Laura Compton’s (West Lothian) seminars on the use of iPODs with reluctant readers was a particular hit with those who attended.
A superb lunch was provided by Highland Catering Services and teas and coffees were available all day thanks to Donnie & Edna MacBean.

About Alan Stewart

I'm a teacher who changed direction after teaching visually impaired pupils. I became interested in how technology could assist young people overcome or deal with various disabilities. I've, since, been an Education Support Officer, an ICT Training Support Officer, and have been Coordinator of Highland's Assistive Technology Support Service for the past 20 years. I'm also the proud father of two young boys (2003 & 2008). View all posts by Alan Stewart
