At Dilton Marsh, we strive to give children the technical knowledge and skills to thrive in the ever changing technological world. Our modern curriculum includes computer programming and the use of up-to-date technologies such as iPads. We provide every opportunity for learners to communicate and collaborate through online technologies.
Recently, we have updated our computers to new laptop trolleys so that every child in the class has access to a computer. These new laptops are able to work in ‘laptop mode’ or ‘tablet mode’ and children have access to a range of different programmes. Children also learn how to best use the internet for learning, at the same time as keeping themselves safe. Our aim is to create digitally literate citizens as well as highly skilled users of technology.
All curriculum areas benefit from the provision of our iPads. Apps are carefully selected and downloaded to best help children move forward in different subject areas. Children can learn from educational applications or can even record their own explanations for other children to learn from.
