St. Patrick's school building is bursting with information, digital resources and is striving to use technological tools to achieve a 21st century learning environment.
The school environment remains at the core of the website design. The background to all pages is the schoolyard and where the school building resides consists of information, images and videos. The homepage slider continues throughout the navigation process allowing viewers to embellish the pride of the school community in the awards they achieved together. Futhermore, the toolbar ties the school community closer together by having tabs for teachers, individual classes, students and parents.
Information about the school can be easily found by the simplistic navigation process. Up to date and current information about the school can be found from the digital PA newsletter, news section, calendar or website articles from individual classes.
Teachers, parents and students are guided to digital resources through the school website. Teachers are guided in their planning by referral to the NCCA documents. Parents are supported with tips, advice and links to websites to help their children reach their full potential in all subject areas. Students have also got a personalised Kidzone where digital resources are recommended so that students enjoy the fun aspect in learning.
The school community is happily using Class Dojo as a communication platform for teachers, students and parents. Parents can log into Class Dojo to actively keep updated on their child's learning journey both socially and academically. Students are also encouraged to develop their digital literacy abilities through competitions such as Fís or creating storybooks on Storybird or blogging on the school blog or creating voting cards with real-life photos embedded. The school website also highlights that they are looking forward to the future European Coding initiatives of "All You Need Is Code".
