Dr. Daithí Ó Murchú visited today with a view to validating our school as Cavan’s first ‘Digital School of Distinction’. He was most impressed and we can now proudly declare that we are a ‘Digital School of Distinction‘. Digital Schools of Distinction is a flagship programme which aims to promote, recognise and encourage excellence in the use of technology in primary school. The award is accredited by the Department of Education and Skills.
Dr. Ó Murchú (http://www.domurchu.com/) is a leading figure in digital learning and he was very complimentary towards the learning environment in St. Brigid’s NS. He noted:
‘The greatest challenge for schools of the 21 Century is creating learning environments for the modern student. St. Brigid’s NS and its team have undertaken this task with meaning , soul and a vibrant vision. It was a privilege to share this journey with them and watch the joy of learning through and with technologies in every classroom’.
