Build students digital skills and support full access to learning

Tablets and laptops have been used in primary schools for many years now. Technology adds an exciting, engaging dimension to learning, builds students’ digital skills and supports more children to fully access learning.

We know that parents don’t always get to see what goes on in the classroom, and many myths exist about how and why technology is used in schools. So, we’ve pulled together some information for you below to give you an insight into the work we do.

Tools for Learning

The learning tools available on student devices assist them with building literacy and numeracy skills, developing independent learning skills, and supporting students who need additional help in school.

We feel it is important that all parents and students know about these freely available tools and how to use them to support students, which is why our team of over 40 teachers built an online training platform where you can do just that.

Below are just some of the hundreds of short training videos on our learning platform, Wriggle Connect Family, for parents and students to get you started.
