OUR PEDAGOGICAL BELIEFS


Redbridge School teaches children to master the use of digital tools in a responsible and age-appropriate way. This prepares them to live in a society in which technology is constantly evolving.

The use of technology and coding is an integral aspect of the student’s learning journey:

  • Our technological resources in the school will include interactive whiteboards, programmable toys and robots and a dedicated computer room equipped with 20 laptops;
  • Children learn programming through practical, programmable toys and games in the Early Years. During the weekly technology classes for the children in the Primary School, coding forms part of the curriculum. The objective is for the students to first understand the role of programming, in order to better comprehend the digital world;
  • Learning coding incorporates being logical, using perspective, anticipating and using trial and error;
  • There is evidence from teachers that the children who learn computer programming are less afraid of taking risks and their confidence in all areas of their learning grows.
