Digital Learning

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
    • Used for remote access to and delivery of homework via services like Padlet, Seesaw and Edmodo.
  • 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.
