INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES (ICT)

The use of ICT is part of everyday life in Malahide Community School. All classrooms are equipped with an iMac computer and a data projector. Students and staff also use iPads to enhance the learning and teaching experience.

There are computer suites for Computer Science at Leaving Certificate and a Design and Communication Graphics lab. Computer science classes, digital citizenship and coding are provided to all students in First Year and TY.

Malahide Community School is currently working towards becoming an Apple Distinguished School for innovation in learning and teaching.

 

IPADS FOR LEARNING IN MALAHIDE COMMUNITY SCHOOL:

Malahide Community School introduced the use of iPads to students and teachers in 2012. Since then, use of technology has enhanced the learning experience of our students and provides them with the opportunity to develop 21st century learning skills.

We work with our technology partner Wriggle to provide safe and managed use of iPads for students in an age appropriate way. We support both parents and students throughout this journey with training and regular communication.

We are happy to report that our students who have completed their Leaving Certificate since the introduction of the iPad have excelled academically and have reported back that they were very well prepared for the technological demands of 3rd level.
