As we delve deeper into the 21st century, Information and Communication Technology is increasingly being woven into the fabric of everyday life. As such, understanding computers, how they work and how we can use them to our benefit is a necessity for future generations.
Our philosophy is to educate Dragon children about computing using the following principles as a foundation:
- Embolden our children - by doing our best to remove the fear of technology
- Encourage our children - by giving them the confidence to try new things
- Engage our children - by getting them excited about technology
- Empower our children - by providing them with the tools they need to achieve their goals independently
We have six dedicated ICT teaching rooms at the school - five at Dragon Prep and one at Dragon Pre-Prep. MIDI keyboards are installed in ICT1 and ICT2 and allow music to be composed and recorded using sequencing software, and we have also furnished ICT3 with a Raspberry Pi at every desk.
In addition to the dedicated ICT suites, digital projectors and interactive whiteboards are provided in classrooms at both sites and enhance learning and lesson delivery. The network extends to all areas of the school, including classrooms, the library, science laboratories, the Art & Design Centre and boarding houses. In total, there are around 250 computers available for pupils to use.
