Tech Tips SEND resources

What are these resources?

These resources were developed by the PZ SEND project, funded by the Department of Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT). They are dedicated to providing teachers with quality-assured media literacy resources that are accessible for children and adaptable for those that teach them.

Tech Tips are available as short and simple Q&As in both PDF and video formats, which help parents consider the important questions around safety, wellbeing and what is best for their child. 

What SEND professionals say

"The guides contain a great deal of extremely useful informations that would be extremely beneficial to teachers, parents and pupils."

"It's not all negative, it lays out the benefits of technology as well as the potential pitfalls."

What works well

  • Useful and precise information
  • Simple, easy-to-understand language
  • Videos with BSL to accompany some of the guides

Things to consider

  • Guides are general and don't provide specific advice relating to supporting children with SEND
  • Guides don't include specific how-to instructions for individual websites
