We are committed to delivering innovative learning opportunities that inspires, challenges and prepares boys for the future. We see effective use and understanding of technology to be an important step towards that goal.
We recognise that we are preparing our boys for a digital world that will be very different from today. It is important to us that they are able to engage with technology with confidence and safety.
We understand that the effective use of technology can enhance learning and take it beyond the classroom, but also recognise that there needs to be a balance. Technology will not be used when pen and paper, or face-to-face discussions are better.
Our curriculum reflects current, real-world learning. Every child will learn to design and code websites, programme and control computers and robots, design in 3D, create content for a wide range of purposes, and much more. Using both personal computers and mobile devices allows us to tailor the learning to the specific age and stage of the boys.
Technology and IT are used across the curriculum at Aldwickbury, iPads are used in such diverse lessons as Art and PE. Geography and History research can be undertaken in the ICT suites and computer aided design and printing skills are developed in Design and Technology lessons.
For those interested in taking their learning further, they can attend optional Tech Clubs.
