ICT is all around us and everyday we use technology to enhance our learning, find information, or just for fun. At Morley Meadow Primary it is important that the children use ICT to enhance their learning journeys in a fun, safe and secure environment.
The children learn and use skills in ICT across all areas of the curriculum, but also have time to reflect and consider the importance of internet safety and appropriate use. As teachers and parents there are many ways we can help our children and understand the technological world we live in.
Remember to teach your children the SMART way to use the latest ever-changing technology.
