Technology in schools is forever changing and MGJ have big plans to upgrade current ICT and introduce some cutting edge computer tech to enhance children’s learning. As part of the school’s research, twenty-one children from all year groups were whisked away to a ‘top-secret’ technology centre at Abingdon, near Oxford. RM Education, a leading supplier of classroom technology to schools have a research and development centre there designed to develop ICT equipment to meet the needs of education now and in the future.
On arrival our research party consisting of children, teachers and Governors were taken through a series of secure doors to a huge room that displayed every kind of ICT equipment you can imagine. Computers, touch screen tablets including iPads, lap tops, electronic notebooks, cameras and even a system for creating computer generated animation were on free display for the children to use and experiment with.
Our children had three hours to immerse themselves in this technology wonderland and each year group were given the challenge of producing a short presentation using any of the equipment on show. These presentations have been saved and will be sent to the school for children to enjoy.
The following day our research party were brought together in the school to give feed back on their exciting visit. One of the key things that emerged was that this new technology made learning fun. Fantastic, epic, cool, brilliant were just a few of the comments from the children.
Technology in the classroom of the future will be an important tool as well as traditional skills and resources that teachers use. The world will require students at the end of their education in schools, colleges and universities to be able to adapt and change as technology changes. MGJ are making plans to give children a great start on this journey.
