Digital Learning in the Junior School
Learners for life, driving technological innovation, limitless possibilities.
Technology is an integral feature of student-centred teaching and learning at Danebank. By laying strong foundations in the Junior School, we are shaping wise digital citizens who can be critical consumers of content, filtering the overload, and able to interpret and curate the vast array of media messages that they receive.
We live in a hyperconnected, digital world where our students find themselves saturated in digital content. All students are taught to navigate the online world as ethical, global citizens who are aware of their rights and responsibilities.
Our students use technologies to inform, plan and create digital solutions, both in the classroom and in specialist digital technology lessons. They communicate, collaborate, create, invent and design, analyse, synthesise and problem solve. They are encouraged to ask questions and transfer their knowledge from one task to another as they learn the skills to be adaptive in an ever -changing world.
Students in the Junior School learn to code robots, build computer programs, engage in STEM projects, design and print using a 3D printer, and develop websites and blogs. Extracurricular activities are offered to students interested in Rrobotics and Makerspace.
We have a well-resourced specialist Digital Technologies Lab that the girls visit each week, where they undertake lessons guided by a specialist technology teacher.
