Use of technology in the classroom

Student learning is supported using a range of technology mediums from height adjustable interactive boards which students interact with directly, to Elmo document cameras and Apple TVs used to showcase and celebrate learning.

Permanent student laptops are available in each classroom for students to log on with their individual logins in order to complete a set task or to research further an interesting question that has been raised within the lesson. In addition, IT rooms, laptop trolleys and iPad trolleys all allow easy and timely access to technology when it is needed to further learning.

Each teacher in school is provided with an iPad in order to exploit the benefits offered by educational apps. Class and trolley iPads are used to add an extra dimension to learning, both through use of educational apps and through productivity tools to support in areas such as mind mapping, annotation and presentation. The school's Year 4-6 students take part in the 1:1 iPad programme which enables them to bring their own device to school, loaded with recommended apps and connected to the school's Google Apps for Education environment: this programme offers students a safe and varied platform on which to learn about online collaboration and effective use of technology.

Teaching approach of the school

Children take steps along their learning journey every day at Kings’, developing skills that are transferable and broad. These help children to make sense of the multicultural world in which they live. Children are encouraged to become effective, enthusiastic and independent learners who are committed to lifelong learning. KSD's curriculum is unique and evolves each year influenced by the needs and interests of the children, current issues and local opportunities.

Enriched by specialist teaching of French, Arabic, PE, ICT, Swimming, Music and Islamic Education it is designed to follow a themed, cross-curricular approach which allows children to be immersed in subjects and to make tangible and appropriate links.

Every opportunity is used to embrace first hand experiences and educational visits are used widely to enhance learning.

KSD has an impressive bank of technology and are excited by the impact the iPad initiative has had on children’s learning. This cutting edge approach to scaffolding learning is one of the many ways we enthuse children and equip them with the tools for life.
