The aims of the Rushcliffe ICT department are that EVERY student will leave school with wide range of modern and relevant ICT skills.
Teaching and learning takes place in ICT suites which provide a modern, stimulating environment in which to learn, using resources that bring the curriculum to life, in lessons that are engaging.
Courses are supported by use of our MOODLE VLE which provides anytime anywhere access to learning resources.
We aim to ensure that all students receive immediate written feedback from their teacher, via the VLE on the level of their coursework, with formative comments on how to achieve the next level.
We consider ICT capability to be of equal importance to numeracy and literacy, and all Rushcliffe students gain a thorough understanding of the use of ICT skills across a wide range of applications
In Years, 7&8, all students study ICT for 1 lesson per week. ICT lessons are delivered through a range of interactive resources including Hodder’s Dynamic Learning.
|"Dynamic Learning is the ultimate online teaching and learning resource. Combining award-winning quality content with easy-to-use tools, it supports teachers and encourages students to develop, progress and achieve." Hodder.|
