Information Technology

Information technology plays an important role in the daily life of students at BISB, whether it is learning new skills in ICT lessons, using technology as a tool when working on other subjects, using the school learning platform, using email to communicate or accessing the internet for information.

Our Vision for ICT

All students will have an appreciation of the impact of ICT on their world.  They will be creative, innovative thinkers who can solve problems and collaborate with others.  They will be efficient, effective & responsible users of ICT.

Technology integration

Our school is equipped with a high capacity wifi network which enables access to the Internet anywhere in the building, we have 2 ICT suites and numerous portable devices to support learning.

From September 2016, Primary School students in years 3 to 6 will have access to their own school iPad for use as a tool in school. The iPads will be used to facilitate collaboration, research, multimedia presentations, translation and an understanding of the capabilities of mobile technology.  Older students are increasingly encouraged to bring their own portable device to use as a tool for learning.

ICT lessons

During ICT lessons are students learn the skills required to use applications that support their learning (e.g. spreadsheets, word processing, research skills) as well as learning how to give dynamic presentations or make digital video and stop-frame animation. 

From age 6 students are taught the basics of programming, when they use 'Scratch' to build games and they use beebot programmable toys to test the logic of their instructions.   Students build on these skills throughout their time at BISB and learn to program at a more complex level using HTML to build websites or Raspberry Pie in robotics projects.

Our enrichment program gives students the opportunity to develop their skills, in the autumn 2017 students are going to take a part in a local robotics competition as well as representing Slovakia in the Jaguar Landrover 4x4 in schools World Finals.

Learning platform

Firefly

Firefly is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), a web application that educators can use to create e ective online learning sites. In September 2017 Firefly replaces Moodle to support learning inside and outside of school. Each Year Group has their own pages and each teachers post homework on Firefly. This can be accessed by students and parents. Throughout the year teachers will also add more new content to their pages such as: photo galleries of student work and being involved in learning experiences, homework assignments that can be submitted on-line via the website (supporting our ‘Green’ school commitment), forums for discussion and debating topics relating to classroom learning themes, links to valuable websites that will support children’s learning – and much more!
