Online Professional Development Webinars

Free of charge, fully interactive, live online training sessions.

ChooseIt! Maker 3:  Learn how to create, edit and play personalised learning materials that can be used in your classroom and with individual students securely online and then download them to your iPad or Android tablet!

Using Switches with the iPad:  This session will look at using switches with the iPad. It will give an overview of iPad switch interfaces and how to connect them to the iPad and look at both the switch access built in to IOS7/8 and those Apps that have switching built in. It will also look at the wide range of switch accessible Apps produced by Inclusive Technology, from cause and effect through to choice making.

Using Tobii Eye Gaze - From Cause and Effect to Communication:  Many users of Tobii systems, either PCEye Go or "C" and "I" series devices, only use software specifically designed for use with eye gaze technology. In this session we will look at a range of different software types that are commonly used in special needs classrooms and describe how they can be accessed using eye gaze. From simple experiential and cause and effect activities through to choice making and communication, by learning how to easily change settings and functions, a whole wealth of software can be enjoyed by the Tobii eye gaze user.

HelpKidzLearn:  HelpKidzLearn is a globally successful online resource for teachers, therapists and parents, providing 80+ accessible learning games which cater for a wide range of users with severe and complex needs, autism, learning difficulties and special access needs. 
Explore the range of online games, activities and Apps on offer, how you might choose activities to meet your learning goals or access needs and see real examples of using HKL with individuals and in group teaching. Participants will also find out about new resources and developments for HKL and get the opportunity to try HKL for free with their own students!

Adapting the Computer for Those Struggling with the Keyboard and Mouse:  The ubiquitous keyboard and mouse present a number of challenges to those with physical disabilities affecting the use of their upper limbs. This session will look at assistive technology, both hardware and software, for the standard keyboard and mouse and the range of alternative devices available.
