Technology in the Classroom

As part of ensuring my classroom is teaching 21st Century Skills, technology including a SMART board and individual i-Pads are used.

SMART boards are interactive whiteboards that can be used to integrate manual and digital input. They can facilitate activities like game show style quizzes where the students use their iPads to answer and they are designed to be used directly by the students as well.

Classroom Set-Up

The classroom is designed to be tidy and organised when the children arrive each morning and leave each day with room for mess and creativity in between!

The floor space is ample for movement between desks with dedicated space for floor based activities. Each item has a place clearly marked and there is even a wet area with easy to clean flooring at the back of the room.
