Our Commitment to Digital Citizenship and the Introduction of iPads

Since early 2015, Beaufort students and staff have had the benefit of using a class set of iPads . Tablet computers as an educational resource encourage creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking in our students and their usage has been a huge success. They have given our students new learning opportunities that are both engaging and fun. As a result all our incoming First Years will be using iPads to access their textbooks and other interactive facilities from September 2016. We , in Beaufort, believe the integration of digital technology is essential as we prepare our students to live and work in a modern society. And of course, the reduced weight of the school bag is something we have been concerned about for a long time. We are very excited about this venture. We have partnered with an organisation Called Wriggle ( www.wriggle.ie) . Simon from Wriggle spoke to incoming First Year parents last night.
