The range of subjects in technical education has changed significantly over the last two decades and now includes craft, design, engineering and graphics. The technologies provide frequent opportunity for active learning in creative and work related contexts. Children will develop an understanding of technologies and their impact on society. They will also develop confidence and skill in the use of these technologies to create, present and record their own ideas and materials. Our ICT programme of study develops discrete skills in emailing, word processing, graphics and information handling from P1-P7. This is delivered in the school’s ICT suite and in class.
The use of a range of technology, including cameras, DVD recorders, I Pads, laptops and interactive SMART boards further supports learning and teaching across the curriculum.
In addition, access to a wide range of software and the World Wide Web enhances and motivates both independent and collaborative learning.
