Technology Hub/Assistive Technology
Staff in the Technology Hub are constantly researching new, effective ways to use technology to mitigate the disabilities of our students. Treloar’s has a commitment that every learner will have access to appropriate technology to enhance and support their education and independence. Every student has a computer access assessment when they start with us, and this is reviewed regularly as needs change. As well as PCs we use iPads extensively in the classroom and encourage students to bring in their own devices and smart speakers which can be connected to the site-wide wireless network.
Our Assistive Technology team devises, sources, adapts or manufactures solutions to improve students’ independence and will use their extensive skills to use technology to assist with any challenge a student may face, whether it’s related to computing, communications, wheelchair mobility, seating, or sport and leisure, and improve the quality of our students’ lives.
The Tech Hub Help Desk is available to students and staff to visit, call or email and assistance can be gained with any technology problem – there will always be someone who can help! Additionally, our Learning Resource Centre will loan books, dvds and other resources, or you can just visit us to use a PC or immerse yourself in our 4D Pop-up tent.
