Use of technology in the classroom

At Redbridge school we believe children should become aware users of Technology and not just consumers. Therefore children from Year 1 onwards have Digital Literacy classes every week taught by a specialist teacher where they learn about how computers work in a very 'hands-on', gamified and innovative way since most of the learning happens off screens. Children learn how to code using programmable robots, they strengthen their reasoning by solving different types of puzzles and they learn important concepts, such as binary or boolean logic, through games. Children are encouraged to ask questions and take part in philosophical enquiry on topics related to Digital Literacy (do robots have emotions, what is intelligence, do innovations have to be useful etc.). Through the different activities, children also learn how to work together, collaborate and develop their resilience and creativity.

Each classroom starting Year 2 onwards is equipped with an Interactive Whiteboard and iPads are also used to support the learning in all the classes. Redbridge School carefully chooses activities on screens and applications to support students and teachers to make the best use of what technology can bring as value added
