  • Are you a teacher working from home? Clearly a Yes
  • Are you supporting pupils with Additional Support Needs? Another Yes
  • Do you know how technology can support their learning? Not so many Yes answers to this one

Pupils at home - if they are fortunate enough and able to - are using a wide range of technologies to access online learning.  Teachers in their homes may not have the knowledge of how in-built accessibility features of most devices can support pupils with Additional Support Needs. See Paul's blog's this week on the use of Coloured Overlays and Text-to-Speech.

We can help!

We are providing schools the opportunity to bring together staff working remotely to learn about Assistive Technologies to support learners with Additional Support Needs.  To minimise the additional workload and to maximise the benefit of this Professional Learning we are going to deliver the training as two 1 hour online learning workshops.  This will give you the opportunity to review what you have learned in Workshop 1, to put it into practice then come back to Workshop 2 with your questions or just to find out more useful support tools and strategies.

It’s really easy to take part.  Once your school has signed up, teachers will be sent a link to an online web conference room. No additional software, apps or equipment is needed.

For more details and costs, please contact Shirley.lawson@ed.ac.uk
