Report from Mrs Maguire
On Thursday 2nd June, Mrs Sharon Maguire, PT Support for Learning, attended a Dragon Software seminar in Edinburgh University. She was accompanied by Mr Roddy Moir, the school’s senior technician, as well as two of our pupils currently benefiting from the software across the curriculum. The seminar was organised as part of the pilot scheme that our school has been involved in since the start of the current session. Mrs Maguire spoke at the seminar, outlining the ways in which the speech-to-text software has been used throughout the school. The pupils also demonstrated how they use this software on a daily basis to assist them with their dyslexic-type difficulties. The fellow participants were very impressed with the pupils’ abilities and both were commended for their ICT skills.
