In order to give our children the best opportunities in their education, our school is well-resourced. This supports children in meeting the demands of education today, where thinking skills, which involve creative and critical approaches to problem-solving and decision-making have a high priority. Therefore, we have an extensive range of technology which sits alongside more traditional resources. These resources help children to break out from the confines of the classroom and to connect with people locally, nationally and globally to discuss real world issues and develop their understanding of different viewpoints from people who live in very different circumstances from their own. This is real learning with teachers helping children to prepare for a real world environment.
Technology makes learning visible where interactive simulations and illustrations can produce a much greater depth of understanding for our children. They develop their ability to research, innovate, present and create, whilst developing an awareness of responsibility for acceptable use and keeping themselves safe. It encourages collective collaboration and allows us at an early age to develop children’s skills with these tools so that they are well placed for the next stage of their education and beyond.
