A strong desire to provide equal opportunities for their students prompted Old Bawn Community School to ensure that each of their students had access to their own windows laptop for learning.
For these students in Tallaght, the impact of this enhanced digital learning has been huge. Take a look at some of the opportunities these students from Tallaght now have as a result of access to technology and innovative learning.
Students have equal access to education.
“I want our students to have the same opportunities as everybody else, that when they walk into university or into a job, they are able to use the technical skills required of them.”
“Whatever their background is or where they come from, we want equality for our students in Tallaght, which is one of the reasons we chose 1:1 devices for our students”, Ursula McCabe, Principal.
Technology empowers learning
“Students are getting way more confident in their abilities with the technology. Everything is a lot more inclusive and accessible to students now, and as a result, the learning is a lot more enjoyable.” Sarah Gibbons, Deputy Principal
Student and parent confidence has increased.
“I find the technology really helpful, especially in subjects like maths and science where I can easily look up examples
At the start, I was a bit nervous about the technology, I wasn’t sure how good it was going to work. The more we started using it, the more and more I realized how good it was.”
