Digital Integration and Computing presentation

 
On Thursday, 27th April, we welcomed parents to our Digital Integration and Computing workshop. The session was an interactive one in which parents learned computer programming and made a short ‘green screen’ movie. Parents were involved in how learning is being enhanced through the use of iPads in lessons. 
 
We also examined the three strands of the computing curriculum: coding or programming; ICT; and digital safety. Parents learned how to control device usage at home and looked at positive strategies to ensure our students are responsible and safe users of technology.
 
We hope to run this workshop again soon.
