We will future proof infrastructures so that technologies excite and enhance our teaching and learning. Our vision is to raise aspirations, standards and skills in order to increase life opportunities in a 21st Century global society.

Initial Staff Meeting

The Welsh Government have developed and released the Digital Competence Framework for the learners of Wales to develop and enhance their digital skills for the workplaces of tomorrow. On Monday, January 15th, 2018, the staff of LHS had their initial training and looked into the plans to embrace this new framework. A copy of the presentation can be viewed here.

Working collaboratively 

One of the themes of the initial meeting for staff was the need for collaborative working; either between pupils, between staff or in combination. This essentially relies on users having online storage for their work (for example, documents) so that multiple users can edit and contribute to the same task.
