E-learning is a specialism at Perins and Information Technology is becoming increasingly important in our students’ development. Through our pioneering Perins laptop scheme our teaching staff actively encourage the use of computers in lessons and at home as the students learn new skills and develop confidence with the technology.

Our Computing course enhance these skills and introduce students into the use of IT in the workplace and prepare them for their future careers.

E-learning Information Evening for new Perins parents- 6th November 2017

We will be holding an e-safety and e-learning event on the evening of 6th November. The first part of the evening 5-5.30pm will cover general e-safety. We will share information about how the curriculum at Perins educates students to help keep themselves safe online. We will share some practical tips for you to support your child online at home. The second part of evening will be drop-in workshops between 5.30 and 6.30pm, where you’ll have an opportunity for a more personalised and hands-on experience of:

  • Show My Homework’ and Perins’ ‘Moodle’ – What is the purpose of these platforms and how can I support my child at home?
  • Internet basics – Using the internet and simple Microsoft programs
  • IT Helpdesk – Problem-solving specific device/networking issues

We look forward to seeing you on the evening but the presentation will be available on our school website in due course, should you not be able to attend.

To assist our planning for the evening, we’d be grateful if you would complete the single question on this response form.
