Lingfield College recognises that digital learning is a key concept that needs to be embraced by educators in today’s classrooms. Technology has tremendous potential to engage, excite and inspire young people. It has the ability to make learning more flexible and to cater for different learning styles and abilities.
Lingfield’s digital strategy has become an intrinsic part of teaching and learning. Miss Suzanne Allen has been appointed as Digital Director and the School has invested in class sets of iPads. Staff have been trained to modify and redefine their teaching practices to enable students to engage in the 21st-Century world.
Students benefit from Lingfield's file share service, securelink, which allows connection to all digital files from anywhere, anytime. They have been particularly engaged with the opportunities to transform their learning with apps such as Nearpod, Explain Everything and Book Creator.
Suzanne has collaborated on use of iPads with experts such as Google educator Kate Cheal, and Caterham's Digital leader Adam Webster. Having attended conferences with guest speakers such as Eton's Dr Percy Harrison (Director of School Administration and IT) and Ian Livingstone, founder of Games Workshop, she is equipped to lead Lingfield in this area.
Students also make use of interactive resources via our E-Learning Moodle site which remains an excellent source of independent study. As a gateway for students and parents, Moodle gives students support for assessments and further links to further their learning.
