The ICT Department at JPS
The vision of ICT at JPS is to improve learning outcomes through cross curricular application of ICT to prepare students with the process skills to deliver success for an ever evolving global environment of information and technology.
We aim to provide our students with the access to modern technology to enable them to leave school as confident, responsible and safe e-learners. Technology is embedded into lesson planning to promote ICT as a tool for engaging the students and enriching their learning. We make use of the many ICT learning pods, ICT labs and interactive White Boards to enhance learning and increase the familiarity of using up-to-date technology.
The children are regularly given the opportunity to use data logging equipment to track and reflect on learning.
GEMS Learning Gateway
The GLG (Gems Learning Gateway) is an interactive website for our students, parents and teachers. It serves as an information storage system, allowing for Home Learning, Newsletters and other weekly communications to be stored centrally and easily accessible to all of our school community. Furthermore it is also used as a learning resource where teachers support both children and parents with learning materials relevant to the Topics being covered in classes. An additional feature is the ability for parents and students to upload their own work and learning materials onto the website for all to share. This and much more on our GLG!
