As technology becomes a natural part of children’s lives, your child will be encouraged to develop their natural curiosity and problem solving skills across a wide range of activities to equip them with the skills needed for life, learning and work. They will be encouraged to use the interactive smart boards, access the internet, take pictures, video and record their work and manipulate programmable toys at all stages in school. They will be encouraged to use a wide range of software programmes to enhance learning.
Last year we acquired Chromebooks which allows a 1:1 Chromebook per P6/7 child and 1:5 across P1-5. Mrs Ross is our Digital Leader and we are developing use of Chromebooks as part of our school improvement plan this year. As part of inter disciplinary learning technology aspects relating to food, design, craft, textiles, enterprise and graphics will be developed through a range of topic approaches.
