If you need additional support with your learning, there may be some technology or digital tools that could help. Here are five services that CALL Scotland offer that could help you.
  1. You can borrow special equipment from their ‘equipment bank’ to help you with your learning. They can offer advice about what could help and how to use it. 
  2. If your support needs makes it harder for you to access standard exam papers, CALL Scotland have SQA exam papers in a digital format.
  3. If you have difficulty reading ordinary print books, you can download lots of books and learning resources in accessible, alternative formats.
  4. Find out more about how to use a text reader to read aloud things like emails, exam papers and homework and where to find one.  
  5. ‘Scottish Digital Voices’ allows you to read and listen to electronic books and resources spoken with a Scottish accent. The different voices include adults, children, men and women to choose from. 
How do I ask about technology to help me with my learning? 
  • Speak to your class teacher or the person who is responsible for you support at school.  
  • If you have a support plan, ask to talk about the use of technology at your next planning meeting.
