ICT Department Philosophy
We aim to provide a safe, caring environment in which all students can achieve their full potential whilst helping them to become independent learners with the skills and knowledge which will equip them for the future. All students are individuals with their own learning styles and needs, so the curriculum has been chosen to ensure that all pupils are able to access information in order to be successful learners. We also provide a wide range of curricular enrichment opportunities for our students to have valuable experiences. All staff within the department are passionate about the subject and this is apparent in the way that ICT and STEAM lessons are delivered.
Students today are using the immense power of digital media to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. With this power, young people have extraordinary opportunities, and yet they face potential pitfalls, too. Some issues faced includes cyber bullying, digital cheating, and safety and security concerns. These issues underscore the need for students to learn and for teachers to teach digital literacy and citizenship skills.
