  • Title: Technology |
    Descriptive info: Technology.. Sacred Heart SNS is very well known as a school that has been using technology since the early years.. We were one of the first schools in Ireland to publish a school web site and one of the first schools to be awarded Digital School status.. It is very common to see groups of teachers from other schools visiting Sacred Heart to get advice and information on some of the ways that technology can be used to enhance learning and teaching, and we always do our best to facilitate such requests.. The use of technology takes many forms throughout the school.. Here are some of the ways that technology is used:.. · All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard to help make lessons bright, stimulating and appealing to pupils.. · The school has two computer rooms, which are used by classes on a rota basis.. ·  ...   4.. th.. , 5.. and 6.. classes use Nintendo DS consoles with.. particular applications.. on a regular basis.. There is a range of digital still and video cameras available to all teachers.. As well as recording important events, the use of cameras is important to help create a print-rich, child-focused environment throughout the school.. We believe that the use of technology is an essential part of life in any modern school.. As well as helping to prepare pupils to.. take their place in a world where technology is all around them, technology, in lots of different ways, used judiciously, can play an enormous role in helping make school life interesting, stimulating and authentic for children.. We don’t regard technology as a subject.. Instead, it should be viewed as a cross-curricular resource, to be used, at teachers’ discretion to enhance the learning and teaching experience when appropriate..

  • Title: Nintendo DS |
    Descriptive info: Nintendo DS.. For the past four years we have being using Nintendo DS applications in the school.. We have found that when particular applications are used in a structure fashion, there are many educational benefits.. Currently, the DS is used in the following ways:.. 1.. All pupils in fourth class use.. Maths Training.. We have found that such usage increases pupils’ enjoyment of maths, their ability with number operations and their general confidence in the subject.. 2.. All pupils in fifth class use.. Brain Training.. The pupils love playing this game, which improves their levels of concentration and memory and boosts their mental agility.. 3.. All pupils in sixth class use.. More Brain Training.. in a similar way.. As  ...   class, pupils may borrow from a large selection of DS games for one week, in addition to their library book from the school library.. All of the available games were reviewed and selected on the basis of their educational value.. A selection of the titles we use are illustrated below:.. 5.. Collaborative problem-solving.. : in senior classes teachers use titles from the superb.. Professor Layton.. series to stimulate pupils working in groups of two or three to work together trying to solve the intriguing mystery presented to them.. To do so, they will have to read a substantial amount of text and use the clues they are given to solve a large selection of challenging puzzles and logic games..
