Presentation by Inspiration:
Inspiration 10 - empower and engage your SEND students to capture and communicate their ideas and understanding visually; then kick start the writing process
Learn how the simplicity of Inspiration 10 and its highly visual approach supports students with SpLDs, autism and anxiety to maximise their potential; for planning and organising, communicating ideas, making visual notes, outlining, writing, revision and creating presentations.
Users quickly capture and develop their ideas graphically, kick start the writing process by adding notes and outlining; then either transfer their work to Word or PowerPoint.

We will be presenting Wordshark Online, our new whole-school version to address reading and spelling needs – accessible from home or from school, on Chromebooks, iPads, laptops etc.
Based on the highly successful classic Wordshark, reluctant students are motivated by its carefully thought-through games and structured word lists.
New age-neutral graphics make Wordshark usable with a wide age range including secondary.
The online version adds a placement test and course with automatic progression.
We will include how to create your own lists, to set work, to access records, and most importantly Wordshark’s versatility to tailor the program with your particular students in mind.

Presentation by Rainforest Coding:
Rainforest Coding - Coding Solution for SEND
We make it fun and easy for SEND and primary age students to learn coding, both in the classroom and at home.
Easy to set up by teachers, Rainforest coding offers a fun, self-paced, online learning environment for students to learn Scratch coding. Plus, with in-built reports, teachers can easily monitor progress at a class and student level - providing evidence of skills learnt and progress made.
As students complete adventures, they face a series of interactive puzzles, games and challenges, centred around learning the key principles of coding. As well as the basics they will learn advanced programming techniques such as Define Blocks, Conditional Statements, Cloning and Variables.
