Active ICT Day in Primary 7

23rd Nov 2017

Primary 7 had a great day utilizing and improving their ICT skills in the promotion of ‘World ICT Day’ (Tuesday 21st November). We took this opportunity to make use of the school’s wide variety of ICT resources. We practiced and developed elements of literacy and numeracy through the use of IPad’s, laptop’s and the Interactive Whiteboard. The children discussed how they can use elements of ICT to help other subjects within the curriculum.

The highlight of the day for primary seven would definitely have been the visit from the Nerve Centre. The tutor’s name was Colm and he quickly developed a strong rapport with the class. Colm helped the children develop their ICT skills through the use of ‘iMovie’. This is where the children, in groups of five and six, created movie trailers utilizing animation and sound to a very high quality. The children also learnt how to use a ‘green screen’ (cutting out and replacing the background setting). The end products were truly captivating and some very creative trailers were produced. There might even be a Steven Spielberg in the making! Watch this space!

Primary 7 loved celebrating World ICT Day!
