The Importance of Digital Provision in Schools

Sam Youngs, Director of Digital Services

“Langley School has recently embarked on a digital revolution. The school is committed to fostering digital skills and providing a supportive learning environment using technology. Through this, we have seen real evidence that pupils and students are more adaptable and are able to showcase their capabilities in various ways. Langley School pupils are demonstrating future-ready skills on a regular basis in the following ways:

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: Our pupils can consistently apply critical thinking skills to analyse information, evaluate evidence, and solve complex problems. They demonstrate the ability to think critically, consider multiple perspectives, and make informed decisions in their assignments and projects. 

Collaboration and Communication: We have found that our pupils and students actively engage in collaborative projects and effectively communicate their ideas and thoughts. They demonstrate strong teamwork skills, actively contribute to group discussions, and engage in constructive dialogue to achieve shared goals. 

Digital Literacy: We have seen our community showcase their digital literacy skills by effectively utilising technology tools, such as their One 2 One Surface devices and Microsoft Teams, to access, evaluate, and create digital content. They demonstrate proficiency in navigating digital platforms, utilising online resources, and employing digital tools for learning and communication. 

Creativity and Innovation: Increased creativity and innovation has been seen in our pupil and student work. They can apply imaginative thinking, propose innovative solutions, and demonstrate originality in their projects, presentations, and assignments using technology as an enabler.

Adaptability and Resilience: We have seen our pupils and students exhibit adaptability and resilience in their learning experiences. They demonstrate the ability to embrace change, navigate challenges, and persist in the face of obstacles. They are open to feedback, learn from failures, and continuously strive for improvement. 

Self-Management and Organisation: Langley School pupils exhibit strong self- management skills by effectively organising their tasks, setting goals, and managing their time. They take responsibility for their learning, meet deadlines, and prioritize their work to achieve optimal outcomes. 

These examples highlight how Langley School pupils consistently showcase future-ready skills in their academic work. The School’s focus on fostering these skills, along with the integration of technology and collaborative platforms, creates an environment where pupils can thrive and develop the capabilities necessary to succeed in an ever- evolving world.”
