Technology is transforming the way we live our lives. Information and communication technology (ICT) has brought profound changes to almost every aspect of our lives in recent years and this change is no more evident than in our classrooms. ICT in education can enhance, enrich and extend our children’s learning in post primary schools. It can transform teaching and learning when deployed appropriately, substantially changing the traditional classroom to one where students learn collaboratively and construct knowledge for themselves. Learning is facilitated fantastically by ICT in ways that were not possible in the past.
Access to ICT prepares our students for living in a rapidly changing society and prepares them for employment in new technologically advanced occupations. Skills in technology have become just as important as being able to read, write and compute information. In Our Ladys our ambition is to ensure that ICT becomes an integral part of the teaching and learning process in every classroom and every area of the curriculum.
