Computers

All classrooms have at least one PC/laptop and either an interactive whiteboard or plasma screen. Children use computers to support literacy and numeracy, as well as other areas of curriculum. Children also work on personalised access targets, developing their ability to functionally use the computer with a switch, touchscreen, joystick, tracker ball, mouse or keyboard. Our core software that supports children’s learning includes:

  • Many titles from the Inclusive Technology Switch Skills range.
  • Clicker 7 – software that can be customised to support the curriculum and personalised to meet children’s learning and access needs. It is particularly good for supporting children’s literacy.
  • Lots of fantastic titles from the Q&D Multimedia range. These can be accessed from home for free under the Busy Things umbrella. Please see the separate link for details.
  • Online resources from a range of sources.
