The youth of today are growing up in a digital world where technology is becoming an increasingly important part of their everyday lives. It is expected that this trend will continue, to the extent that technological literacy will become a functional requirement for both their professional and social lives.
The Primary School Curriculum promotes the use of ICT to enhance teaching and learning across all areas of the curriculum.
Our aim in Drumraney N.S. is to help the children to learn how to use ICT confidently and effectively so that they can benefit from the wide array of learning opportunities offered by modern technology and the Internet.
Note: Despite the vast range of opportunities provided by the use of technology, parents and teachers need to be mindful of the risks/challenges involved. We have a duty of care to help our children/students to use new digital technologies in a safe and responsible way. We need to teach our children/students how to be safe online and we need to reinforce internet safety warnings with them regularly. We endeavour to be involved in a monitoring process, whenever and wherever they are online.
