Here at St. Andrews Dusit, we aim to help our pupils become confident digital learners. Pupils at Dusit learn to use digital technology both as part of their every day lessons and as its own subject.
Throughout their school day, pupils make use of technology to research, manipulate and present information. Every class has access to both i-Pads and laptops that can be used by children in creative and flexible ways. In English lessons they might publish their work in a digital format, in history they might research and present information, in art they might develop an understanding of how they can manipulate photographs and in science they might compile results in databases and graphs.
In our stand alone computing lessons, pupils have the opportunity to develop coding and computational thinking skills. These key fundamentals allow them to create and debug simple programs, giving them a head start in the world of programming.
At Dusit we also know that the online world is a complex place for children to navigate so through our regular e-safety lessons pupils develop their understanding of how to protect themselves online, how to evaluate sources of information and how to seek help if they need it.
