Welcome to the Digital Learning section of the Airyhall School website!
Through this page, we will be sharing some useful resources and webpages to support digital learning and internet safety at home. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the PTA for all their fundraising efforts, which have resulted in Airyhall being able to purchase a large number of Google Chromebook devices. These will help our children become more digitally literate and get them to grips with the ever evolving world of technology.
Digital Learning Resources for Parents
Following on from some recent parent workshops linked to Digital Learning, I have attached some of the documents that were used to support the training. Hopefully, these will be of use when it comes to supporting Digital Technologies at home. If you have any questions, or would be interested in any further workshops, please contact Mrs Jones.
