News: More technology in schools

monitor1Teachers are going to be given extra training so that they can keep up with their computer expert pupils. Under the latest proposals the primary timetable should be more flexible and the internet should be embedded within it. Pupils will be encouraged to use websites such as Google Earth, Wiki and Mathsblog (well why not?) to study the new Areas of Learning.

These Areas of learning are:

Understanding English, communication and languages
Mathematical understanding
Scientific and technological understanding
Human, social and environmental understanding
Understanding physical health and well-being
Understanding the arts and design.

Teachers will need to have training on the latest developments on the web and become more aware of the fantastic possibilities which are now available. Good.
