We have had a successful week this week with our new technology. We had three very exciting workshops, for our Parents, lead by Mrs Jones. Parents were learning how to use the Google Suite and in particular Texthelp. The workshops were very well received and it was great to see our new Chromebooks being used by parents. These Chromebooks were generously donated to school by our very own Airyhall PTA with funds raised from all their amazing fundraising events. They were also very successful in obtaining funds from the Evening Express Pounds for Primaries fundraiser.
Mrs Jones has been leading the way with our new technology and in line with our School Improvement Plan, has completed recent training with Staff, Digital Leaders and of course Parents.
Pupils have been using the new technology and have really loved using the new Google devices to enhance their learning. The Chromebooks have been used for lots of fun things already which include research related tasks, supporting writing, Sumdog and Nessy spelling.
The Digital Leaders are going to be trained to use Texthelp to encourage the use of this further in their own classrooms. We want to extend a huge thank you to the PTA for helping us fund the purchase of these devices, they are amazing!
