Children at the Gleddings use computers from Nursery onwards and ICT quickly becomes a valuable tool in their academic skill-set.
They are encouraged to use technology for more effective communication and enhanced learning in all subject areas. Web 2.0 technologies are explored as the children become programmers, bloggers, filmmakers, architects and composers.
Above all else, children learn that the array of ever-changing equipment available to them is not just for playing games passively on – they are taught to be creators, not consumers. This extends from lessons into the many after school computer clubs where the children can learn how to write their own games with Scratch, and create fun animations.
