Using Signalong for communication with pupils?

Sign dogAlways forget what the sign is??

There is a new Signalong  service which is extremely helpful.  You text 07446462146 with SIGN and then a word to look up.  They then send you a description of the sign right back.

You can do this up to 8 times a month for no additional charge – each use will still cost your normal network rate for a text.  After that, if you want to, you can upgrade to get unlimited signs a month for £30 a year.

Many thanks to Susan Henderson, Edinburgh City Council for sharing this information.

 

A guide to the Assistive Software on school computers

Assistive software on ELC school computers

Please have a look at this guide which gives a short description of the assistive software available on East Lothian Council school computers. For many students with additonal support needs the use of technology is really important for them to become independent learners.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
