I learned not to worry so much about the outcome, but to concentrate on the step I was on and to try to do it as perfectly as I could when doing it

Digital Learning

We use digital technology for teaching and learning daily in Scoil Mhuire. All Classrooms are fitted with state-of-the-art high definition LCD interactive screens. The new ‘Caint is Comhrá’ Gaeilge Programme and ‘Rainbow’ Oral Language Programme (OLP) introduced this year provide the pupils with a range of online interactive resources.

All classes use Chromebooks and both teachers and pupils alike are proficient in the use of Google Workspace. Pupils create Google Forms Quizzes, Slides and Documents to reinforce their learning in all Curricular areas. Google Classroom is useful in maintaining home-school links. The Chromebooks are also used daily for Accelerated Reading, Spellings for Me and Typing Club.

We have a set of iPads with numerous educational apps used to create exciting digital projects such as the QuiverVision app to create Augmented Reality Art to learn about everything from the Water Cycle to Platonic Solids. The Chatterbox app is used to create fun videos on Réamhaisneis na hAimsire or The Digestive System, examples of this work are on our Facebook and Instagram pages. The Duolingo app available on all iPads is a very useful resource for our EAL pupils to assist them in learning English.
