IPads

Our school uses iPads for two classes per week per class group from Junior Infants to 6th class!
Each class uses the IPads to; access information for project work, access an abundance of different programs or play educational games.
They really are a fantastic resource!!

 

Use of Online Resources

Our school adopted a number of online platforms to stay connected with pupils and parents during the lockdown period. Class teachers connected with pupils and parents using e-mail and online platforms such as Google classroom, SeeSaw, and Class Dojo.

Many classes completed various weekly SESE projects using Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.

Also, some classes used Kahoot to complete a weekly quiz during the lockdown period.
