St Kevin's Lisnaskea
We are an innovative and forward-thinking school, committed to developing our students into well-rounded, confident and successful young men and women. The Digital Schoolhouse is to allow us to use our computing expertise and resources to offer primary schools access to the computing curriculum. We can support schools’ teaching and learning, and we hope our workshops will be engaging and innovative. The workshops start with a kinaesthetic approach exploring computational thinking concepts followed by developing algorithms and programming in different environments, depending on the workshop. Our aim is to build student confidence and enthusiasm for computing and aid their transition into secondary school.
Please contact us and discuss the workshops as a number can be adapted to a theme you are covering in lessons.
