Digital Teaching and Learning

At Howbury School the use of technology to support teaching and learning is embedded within the curriculum. Technology is seen as a tool to be used to enhance and transform teaching and as a method for pupils to demonstrate their learning.

We Integrate technology in teaching and learning using the SAMR model, our ultimate aim is to redefine tasks into ones which could only be carried out by using technology. It is not our aim to simply replace writing with a pencil/pen with a task which utilises typing on a laptop for example.

At Howbury School there is an expectation that technology will be used in the classroom at different points of lessons such as:

  • During adult led input
  • content creating by pupils
  •  assessment for learning
  • differentiation by outcome 

To support this we have a core group of applications/software which are expected to be used by all ages throughout the year.  

 

Online Learning platform

 

At Howbury School,  Each physical class has an online classroom/ learning portal where pupils can communicate with teachers and other pupils, get study and learning materials and  get access to learning tools and games . The online platform also provides the opportunity for personalized learning and offers opportunity for  digital differentiation to complement differentiation practiced in physical classroom. 

Pupils receive pop quizzes and  E-home work  weekly which are graded and feedback provided. 80% of school assessments are done digitally  via the online learning platfrom.
