Year 8 embracing new technology

As our classroom environments start to look a little different during the current educational climate, year 8 have been testing out Birchensale’s new tech in the form of Acer Spin books. These portable flipbooks allow pupils to enhance pupil ICT skills whilst currently not being able to be in their normal ICT rooms. Pupils in 8BW spent the morning researching information about the latest Mars rover (perseverance) as part of a STEM form-based activity. Pupils loved the experience and feel of these new spin books and already began to explore their many features which enable them to carry out independent learning. We look forward to incorporating this new technology and much more into all our KS2 and KS3 lessons to enable broad and balanced ICT opportunities throughout.
