We celebrated Engineers Week in our school by engaging in a number of Engineering activities. We looked at a power point of the fairy tale Rapunzel and each group created a tower that Rapunzel lived in where she could easily go in and out of it, unlike the one in the fairy-tale.
We also worked with Lego Education during the week. The Senior room created a motorised vehicle using lego. It was really exciting.
Our new 75” Clevertouch Plus interactive touchscreen display is an amazing addition to our school. This type of touchscreen display is far superior to the traditional projector-type interactive whiteboards that are used in most Irish classrooms.
This android device, with its stunning 4K Ultra HD display, is fully interactive and immediately captures the imagination and interest of every student. The simple user interface ensures that pupils of any age, most of whom are already so familiar with tablets and smartphones, can immediately engage with the Clevertouch Plus. With features such as full internet access, wireless projection, USB connection and 20-point touch, the educational opportunities are endless!
The Clevertouch Plus is built specifically for education and comes with full access to all the innovative software and educational apps available on the Cleverstore (the only cost-free and advert-free educational app store). The range of content and activities available covers all subject areas, for all age groups, and provides many exciting new opportunities for teaching and learning.
This interactive touchscreen is currently the pinnacle of the Clevertouch Plus Series, in both size and capabilities, which guarantees it will remain at the fore-front of educational technology for many years to come.
