12 Jan Digital Divide Funding
“ICT, if sensibly deployed and with carefully selected software, can positively affect many aspects of school life, from a healthy questioning of present teaching practices to a gradual improvement of the quality, scope and depth of the learning environment, as well as to provide a remarkable opportunity for teachers’ development.”
This quote from the research paper ‘Technology in Schools: Education, ICT and the Knowledge Society’ (Hepp. Hinostroza. Laval. Rehbein. 2004) reinforces the importance of ICT in classrooms across the country. Not only for students benefit but also teachers can improve with a new way of teaching.
Digital Divide Grant Funding
A €50m grant funding for schools has recently been announced which considers the advancement of digital technology in primary and post-primary education. Minister for Education Norma Foley TD on the grant scheme “School communities made incredible strides in digital teaching and learning during the pandemic. An enormous effort was made by teachers and students, and a huge amount has been learned. We know also that for some students a lack of infrastructure impeded their ability to engage with remote learning. This digital divide will also impact their capacity to engage fully with digital technology and development of digital skills.”
