The Autumn Term 2020 marked a significant turning point in the history of Colchester High School as we embarked on a new digital age of education with the roll-out of individual 1-2-1 HP 300 devices from Year 3 to Year 11.
Building on the momentum of our successful delivery of online learning during lockdown, the use of 1-2-1 devices will ensure that our pupils continue to benefit from the use of technology to support and enhance their learning, inspiring creativity and collaboration and developing autonomous learners.
1-2-1 Device Roll Out
How will this change learning in the classroom?
Technological innovation and digital literacy are re-shaping the classroom experience for learners of all ages.
Digital readiness brings with it enormous benefits for teaching and learning, and develops skills that every child should be equipped with upon leaving school. Your child’s device provides a means for developing those skills and can transform their learning experience as a result.
While online learning will not be replacing traditional methods of learning in the classroom and may not be used in every lesson, this device will add great value to the ways in which lessons can be taught.
The top 5 benefits that can be delivered through digital learning:
- Greater control over how students use and work with the resources provided
- New opportunities for teachers to deliver different types of instructions or resources depending on what works best for your child
- More immediate – and different types of – feedback on their work
- Presenting work in new ways, digitally
- Collaboration e.g. working together across devices in real time – and even working with students at other schools in other countries across the Cognita family
Your child’s laptop will open up new doors on how they take notes, write essays and stories, and organise their work.
Welcome to the future of learning!
Prepared for Any Eventuality
In an uncertain world, one thing every parent needs to be sure of is an excellent and uninterrupted education for their child.
At Colchester High School, we can look back with pride on the online teaching and learning provision offered to all our pupils, from Nursery to Year 11, during the COVID school lockdowns and should remote learning be necessary again, we are prepared to seamlessly switch to online teaching and learning, ensuring that our pupils are able to access their learning “Anytime, Anywhere, Anyplace”.
Which is why there’s never been a better time to invest in your child’s future at Colchester High School.
