Since opening in 2014 the the vision and rationale for the use of technology has been a priority focus in our strategic planning. Moving forward we strive to remain faithful to that vision and continue to be a place of learning where technology allows our students and teachers to flourish. We will build on our achievements to date with a focus on teacher CPD and increased access for all.
- Exploiting the full functionality of the iPad has been transformative for many of our SEN students in accessing the curriculum, engaging with the learning, organising their resources and showcasing what they have learnt through various methods including speech to text. Moving forward we will leverage the technology, including the functionality of the iPad to deepen access, integration and engagement of our students in the Claddagh Class. (Autism Special Class)
- As a learning community we will continue to support innovation through targeted CPD for teachers, an openness to new learning and a commitment to enriching the learning for our student. We are planning to include the Apple Teacher portfolio as an element of our new teacher induction programme. We believe that this self-paced professional learning will give our teachers the confidence to be creative in their instructional design, and will align with our culture of collegiality and the nurturing of reflective practice.
