The new Gaelic Primary School in Inverness is due to open its doors to pupils in August this year under the leadership of Seònaid Nicleoid (Janet Macleod). Janet arranged for the staff of the new school to spend two days with the ATS Service/ICT Training Support Unit to look at ways of developing their ICT capacity to meet the demands of a 21st century school.
We were delighted to be asked to support the school at this exciting time and have tried to set the staff on the path to becoming ‘Digital Teachers’.
The teachers were all exposed to a range of interactive technologies that will, hopefully, help them to generate exciting multimedia teaching resources as well as creative learning experiences for their pupils. Software was chosen for its ability to accept the gaelic language both in terms of writing and its audio visual capabilities for delivery by staff and for creative use by pupils.
We look forward to continuing our association with Janet Macleod and the staff of Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis.
