Technology - Remote-controlled coaching

17th April 2009 at 01:00

A successful technology club at a Moray school has caught the eye of inspectors.

Resources at the Lhanbryde Primary lunchtime club include remote-control toys selected by the pupil parliament. P6 and 7 children are trained to use the toys; they, in turn, become trainers for P1-3. A technology evening invited parents to be trained by club members who acted as coaches. Pupils have also been invited to talk about their skills at an enterprise event in a local hotel.

Teachers say P1-3s have become more confident with technology and there have been benefits for communication and citizenship skills. The club was highlighted on the good practice section of the HMIE website.
