ICT

At Linwood School we aim to provide our students the opportunity to achieve their best using a variety of the latest technology such as:

  • Smart interactive boards – These are the latest large touchscreen whiteboards which create an engaging and interactive learning experience in the classroom.
  • Touch sensitive monitors – For pupils who find a standard keyboard and mouse difficult to use, these monitors offer an alternative solution to interact with technology.
  • Assistive switches – These switches enable pupils with motor skill difficulties to interact with specialist software and equipment. 
  • iPads – We are using the latest iPads within the school to further improve the range of equipment to help stimulate and further educate our pupils in various ways. We use a broad range of apps to support the curriculum as well as sensory apps for our learners with complex needs.
  • Eye gaze technology – We have four eye gaze devices within the school. Eye gaze technology has proven particularly successful for pupils with impaired motor skills. It provides quicker and easier access and is a lot less restrictive. Some of our pupils use eyegaze on a sensory and exploratory level as well as for grid-based symbol communication systems.
  • Interactive floor and wall projectors – These systems create dynamic images on the floor and wall and respond to gesture and movement. They encourage active participation as well as stimulating language and physical/mental development.
  • Multi-touch mobile interactive touchscreens – These large touchscreens are height and tilt adjustable and are extremely beneficial for pupils working in their wheelchairs or in a reclined position.
  • Photography/Video Recording – We also have the latest compact digital cameras and video recording equipment that pupils have enjoyed using for their dance and drama performances.

Our ICT is managed by Mark Dutson (ICT Leader) and Allan Searle (ICT Network Manager).
