EBOOK HAS ARRIVED IN ST AIDANS COMMUNITY SCHOOL TALLAGHT

The Connect School project in St Aidans Community School, Brookfield is moving to new levels. Students in St Michaels - second year class - in St Aidans Community School will have History and Geography ebooks installed on their laptops on Friday 24th April in the County Library, Tallaght. This is a pilot project organised by South Dublin County Council and Gill & McMillan to further develop the use of technology in the school.

Having ebooks will lighten the load for students as they will not have to carry books and will be able to access their textbooks in a new and exciting way. The pilot will also allow teachers and students to use Gill & McMillans new etest - new fun way to learn and provide instant feedback to students.

The students of St Michaels class are looking forward to this new development said Frank Moran, Principal of St Aidans. The Connect project is in its third year and the move to ebooks is a natural progression. We are delighted to be a part of this project St Aidans is at the leading edge of the use of ICT in the classroom and we are very proud of that

Connect School is delivered with the support of Dublin West Education Centre, Institute of Technology, Tallaght, National Centre for Technology in Education & the Department of Education.
