Chalfont St Giles Village School has a firm belief that learning is enhanced with the inclusion of a variety of interactive and mobile technologies. As a school, we are adapting to a world that incorporates computer devices as a part of everyday experience.
We recognise that Information and Communications Technology is an important tool in both the society we live in and the process of teaching and learning. Children should learn to use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. They should learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of sources.
Children should also learn Computing skills such as coding, data handling and modelling in order to become more creative ICT users.
In our ever changing world, it is imperative that we provide children with a variety of learning opportunities that incorporate various technologies that will equip them to live, learn and work in our modern world. Our vision is for all children to become lifelong learners through the use of ICT so that they can develop the skills, knowledge and understanding -preparing them for their futures.
Our school currently has interactive whiteboards, laptops, desktops, digital cameras, digital camcorders, voice recorders, headphones and visualisers. This technology enables all children to be involved in a vast array of teaching and learning opportunities that can be made more engaging, interactive and relevant.
We are currently incorporating the use of iPads into the classroom at the Junior School, alongside new technology at the Infant School. This will allow more children to have more access to ICT resources on a regular basis across the breadth of our curriculum.
