Our Grade Sixes at Sun Valley Group of Schools have ‘Passion and Grit’, in all aspects of the learning process. We having so much fun ensuring that the use of technology has been incorporated into our curriculum.
Our Interactive teaching Applications help the children see the functionality of the tools like the use of a protractor and compass, during Mathematics, which are on the Interactive whiteboard.
The iBook in English, allow the children to have technology at their finger tips for the basics like the use of dictionaries, if the words are too complex. They use the iPads to record themselves when presenting work. A special iPad adapter allows the children to put the subject matter on the whiteboard to display their iMovies or Keynotes to the class.
The digital devices are crucial when introducing new topics in Thematic. The children can research work on the various child friendly sites that we tell the children to utilise.
Learning and teaching in the new millennium is a real joy. Our children are definitely given the opportunity to enjoy the use of technology in a safe and caring environment at HOME. As teachers we use this tool not only for learning ,but ensuring that embedding takes place in a fun way.
