ICT & Inclusion Roadshow in pictures

There was a real buzz around Victoria Park at the ICT & Inclusion Roadshow on Wednesday 28th March. Feedback was extremely positive with many participants commenting on the high quality of the ‘inspiring and practical’ seminars and how they would have been useful for teachers from a wide range of backgrounds.

Suppliers and delegates commented on the useful opportunities to discuss matters in-depth about the use of technology to support children with additional support needs.

The very helpful evaluations will help us to improve the event for the future.

Some points made:

    the need for the day to be extended – possibly into the evening – so that staff and parents could come after school
    more presentations by staff
    extend the day to take in more participants

Comments and suggestions welcome – as always.

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.

One thought on “ICT & Inclusion Roadshow in pictures

  1. There have been a number of complaints about the early closure by some of the company exhibitors. The very understandable criticisms came from staff who had hoped to use time after the school day to catch up with the ICT & Inclusion updates.

    All points have been noted and we will not hold this event again without assurances from the suppliers that they will honour the full day time commitment.

    I would offer my sincere apologies to those who were disappointed.
