Want to learn more about Dyslexic Learners and Technology?

Despite having so many more laptops, chromebooks and iPads in the hands of learners there is still a lack of information and training being provided to teachers on how to make the most of these devices to support dyslexic learners.


Great opportunities to learn about Technology with the CALL team!

Delivering our Professional Learning online has allowed us to reach a far greater number of people and have a wider geographical audience. We have been delighted to share our expertise with teachers, Pupil Support Assistants, Support for Learning staff, parents, students and external professionals involved with pupils with Additional Support Needs.


Apps to convert printed text to digital format - which one is best?

A question we often get asked at CALL is about converting paper or printed worksheets to digital format that can be read aloud using text-to-speech by a device such as an iPad or Android.


Online spelling checkers - which one is best?

Iím a touch-typist but Iím forever making typos (and the odd genuine spelling mistake) so I find spell checkers invaluable.
