During the past 18 months, we have relied on technology in all areas of life, and particularly in continuing with education. This has signalled a ‘step change’ in what learning will look like in the future. With that in mind, the College is investing in a more robust and resilient network infrastructure in order to better cater for this exciting next step in learning and teaching.
We have committed to up-skilling our staff and undertaking a cross subject review of the way that we teach, with the aim of making staff more aware of the range of options and strategies available when using technology in their planning and delivery. We aspire to deliver lessons which are dynamic, creative, sophisticated and transformative to ensure that our students leave here able to meet the demands of the changing world with confidence.
In order to maximise learning in lessons, we are excited to introduce a personal learning device approach for students who will be joining us in September 2022.
Some of you will already be familiar with this approach to learning because it has been adopted by your school. It may be called something different, but essentially this is an approach by which students are invited to use technology as part of their learning ‘tool kit’.
We feel that learning with technology allows students to develop greater independence. You will learn key digital skills that will help you in your next steps after College, whatever that may be. Some examples of how technology will be used to enhance learning:
