The Assistive Technology Support Service is thrilled to announce that one of this session’s ICT & Inclusion Roadshow events is to be held in Inverness.

This well-established touring event returns for the first time since 2009 and brings together expertise from CALL Scotland, BRITE, as well as developers and suppliers of Assistive Technologies that support the inclusion of many of our pupils. It’s a chance to hear up-to-date news and developments (of which there are many) and to speak to the experts, face-to-face.

We hope that many teachers will attend the day (or part) and that we will be joined by our colleagues from Speech & Language and Occupational Therapy. Parents are also very welcome.

We will be sending out additional information sheets/booking forms but Highland Education staff should register via the Highland CPD Calendar.

ICT and Inclusion Roadshow, 2014

ICT and Inclusion is Scotland’s leading annual exhibition with a focus on the use of ICT to support learners with additional support needs.

This year’s roadshows are being held at:

Kingsmill Hotel, Culcabock Road, Inverness, IV2 3LP, 10th June

CALL Scotland, University of Edinburgh, 11th June

CALL Scotland and BRITE, the organisers of the event, have arranged for up to 20 of the UK’s leading suppliers of software and technology to support learners with additional support needs to take part in the exhibition and to give a short presentation on their latest products.

There will also be short presentations by staff from BRITE, CALL and local schools, colleges and services, illustrating the use of technology to support learning.

The days are free to attend and run from 9.00 until 4.00 pm. Lunch is provided for people who book in advance.

Though ICT and Inclusion is aimed mainly at staff from schools and colleges, equipment and software on display may be of interest to adults with disabilities and the people who support them.

The event is supported by Highland Council.
