ICT in Curriculum
ICT@MCS aims to enhance and individualize learners’ educational experience, helping them to enjoy learning, improve their performance, and raise standards in literacy, numeracy and other areas of study. It aims to elevate pupils’ creativity, developing their digital and visual literacies by providing them with an appropriate blend of non-technological and online resources, extending their learning beyond the boundaries of school. ICT in Marymount Convent School aims to help pupils develop the skills needed, using the 5Es, to be active in the global knowledge economy.

Evaluate is about pupils reflecting on their process and outcome, thinking about how they carried out the task and how they might improve upon what they did. Tasks with a strong problem solving focus can ensure more explicit coverage of this ‘E’.
Exhibit is about pupils managing and showcasing their work digitally. It ranges from pupils printing and saving their work to organizing and maintaining digital personalized areas.
