Digital technology is embedded in all aspects of modern life. In St Audoen’s we have access to technologies that are transforming how we connect, learn, share, work and play in innovative and exciting new ways.
In St Audoen’s NS each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard, a powerful tool allowing the integration of media content into lessons and supporting collaborative learning while creating a wide range of learning opportunities. We have a Computer Room with a suite of laptops for whole class learning and we are very fortunate to have a ‘Smart Classroom’, with thanks to Samsung Ireland. This is a fully equipped classroom with tablets for each student; these technologically enhanced classrooms foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating learning specialised software, networking, and audio/visual capabilities.
Using modern technology students can access a vast range of digital tools, resources, and environments that support learning. As a school we can collaborate with others learners and experts far and wide, creating opportunities for progressive and diverse learning experiences.
Such opportunities develop our student’s higher order thinking skills, provide creative and individualised options to express their understandings and leave students better prepared to deal with ongoing technological change in society and the workplace.
