SUCCESS IS in the air for a Delph-based technology company which has clinched Britain’s top business award for a second consecutive year.
Inclusive Technology has received a 2017 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, which follows its achievement of winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade in 2016.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the highest official UK awards and honour British businesses who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development.
Inclusive Technology, which develops and sells assistive technology for learners with special educational needs, received their latest accolade for their ChooseIt! Maker 3 (CM3).
CM3 is a popular online classroom resource for learners with special or additional needs. It allows teachers to create activities personalised for an individual child or teaching group.
Teachers can add images, take photos, record sounds, draw or paint, and in addition there is a built-in media library allowing the creation of national or core standard curriculum activities in minutes.
Every CM3 activity automatically records each learner’s progression and achievements, allowing results to be saved and shared with the learner’s parents.
Once created the activity can be used on the classroom computer or, crucially, published as an App to be used anywhere offline, such as at home or in the car.
To date 97,000 activities have been created, and each can be shared freely with classmates or with a twinned school here or overseas.
Martin Littler, a founder and the executive chairman of Inclusive Technology, said: “I’m so delighted to receive a second successive Queen’s Award.
“It’s a great reward for our animators, graphic artists and coders as well as our specialist education and speech therapy staff – indeed the whole team.
“ChooseIt! Maker 3 enables kids to make choices. That’s fundamental to independence, communication, learning, everything.”
The Queen will hold a Reception at Buckingham Palace in late Summer for this year’s award winners, who will also received a ‘Grant of Appointment’ and a commemorative crystal bowl.
CM3 has already won the top software awards in Britain and in the United States in its first year, for IT solutions for special needs students.
