This is done by:
The school has a suite containing 32 desktop computers, allowing each child to have their own computer to work at during their Computing lessons. In some lessons children are taught explicit skills, however most sessions across the school are cross-curricular. The children are able to access their work from anywhere in the school building as each child has their own personal log-in which takes them straight to their ‘My Documents’ where they will find everything they have been working on right from Year 3 through to Year 6.
We also have two iPad caddies, fully funded by the Friends (our PTA), each containing 16 iPads. The children really enjoy using these as they are utilised within the classroom environment to perform online research, capture information, explore apps across all subjects, as well as being able to be used as a publishing tool.
Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard, iPad mirroring and a visualiser, enabling technology to be used as a teaching tool and resource for learning.
During this week children were reminded of the need to be safety conscious whilst using the internet.
We also had a meeting for parents where we shared tips and ideas for keeping children safe online. The notes and links from that meeting are shared below.
