Catchment Area Project -
Although the NCTE has devoted a lot of time and resources
into encouraging the use of ICT in schools, technical difficulties
and insufficient knowledge are two of the main factors preventing
the everyday use of ICT in Irish National Schools.
The aim of SIP Project 079 is to provide ongoing Technical
Support to each of the schools in the Dunmore Catchment Area.
This is achieved by the provision of an IT Technician, on
call, to the schools and who can help solve the problems that
Training is also being provided to students and teachers
in the use of E-mail, Internet, Chat Rooms, Discussion Forums
and desktop publishing. A teacher in each school is also been
taught basic technical problem solving.
