Our School Excellence – Digital initiative has allowed our school cluster to fund innovative new technologies that introduce children to computational thinking and engineering principles in a fun and engaging way. The three West Cork Schools – Togher N.S, Cappabue N.S. and ourselves have been busy putting these new technologies to good use. Find out more from our latest video.
WeDo is a primary education resource developed for younger primary school pupils as an introduction to control technology and programming using robotics. It’s a fantastic, simple-to-use tool that enables pupils to learn by constructing their own models and bringing them to life. WeDo ticks national curriculum boxes and comes with a cross-curricular plug ‘n’ teach curriculum pack that improves communication, collaboration and team-building skills.
WeDo helps teach how technology plays an active and informative role in the pupils’ learning and is an ideal product for teaching across different subjects at primary school, particularly literacy, science, maths, technology and engineering.
