Digital Learning & Resources
BHGS state-of-the-art facilities, technology and digital resources makes it the school of choice for classroom and remote learning in the most challenging of circumstances
In today’s world, digital technologies play an important role in everyday life. Therefore, it’s important that pupils have access to technology to experience the best learning and to prepare them for their future careers.
At Bishop’s, pupils have access to suites of highly-specified desktop computers for delivery of a range of lessons including computing, graphical design and media studies. In addition, the new building features flood wifi enabling us to deliver IT to any classroom through trolleys of portable devices. Pupils can therefore access digital resources and develop data analysis skills to support curriculum learning whenever required.
The school’s substantial physical resources are supplemented by subscriptions to a wide range of digital resources and software, which pupils may access from anywhere. All pupils are registered for each subject – and in their form group – on Google Classroom, from which they are able to access resources, homework and announcements shared by each of their teachers. They are also able to collaborate on group or whole class learning activities. Google has proved to be a powerful tool for learning and provides the option for teachers and pupils to be “live” in interactive lessons if they have to work remotely. It has enabled pupils to develop their independent learning skills and allowed teachers to engage digitally with their classes.
The school has adopted the digital platform Go4Schools for assessment, progress reporting and behaviour monitoring. This allows all staff to record, view and track up-to-date details about any pupil, enabling achievements or concerns to be identified at the earliest opportunity. Parents benefit from having access to their pupils’ behaviour and tracking reports throughout the year.
