Gaelscoil Philib Barún has adopted a variety of Digital Learning techniques to deliver high quality learning experiences using digital technology. While many were introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, some had already been planned prior to this and were merely accelerated in 2020 instead.
The Digital Learning initiatives active in the school at present include:
- Homework Collaboration (via Padlet)
- Used for remote access to and delivery of homework;
- Microsoft Office 365
- For email, document management and other cloud-based productivity tools;
- STEAM (incl. STEM)
- For the advancement of learning through Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering & Mathematics;
Additional measures that are in the advanced stages of planning include the use of tablet devices to provide learning support for younger children.
