Digital Learning at Gorsemoor
Our commitment to Digital Learning at Gorsemoor
Our pupils growing up in the 21st century will be seeking careers in an environment characterised by change, chance and uncertainty (World Economic Forum, 2018). Findings indicate childhood experiences are foundational in the construction of identity; observations of attitudes towards work within families, cultural stereotypes, and influence of the media may influence children’s meaning of work and in turn their occupational identities and this is why embedding technology within our curriculum is highly valued at Gorsemoor.
The computing revolution and major digital creativity initiative is a key driver of our school curriculum as we move forward together to become a centre of digital excellence. With specialist leadership, we aim to be at the forefront of using new technologies to support the next generation of learning.
The desired outcomes of a concerted focus on digital learning at Gorsemoor include
(i) improved educational outcomes;
(ii) a broadening and raising of pupil career aspirations;
(iii) greater awareness of enterprise and entrepreneurship;
(iv) increased confidence and self-efficacy;
(v) improved understanding of the link between education, qualifications and careers and decreased gender stereotyping;
(vi) and improved social emotional skills and behaviours.
