ICT is not a formal subject in Irish Primary Schools, it is not included in the Curriculum timetable. However it plays a major part in school life, both for the teacher and for the students. It is used in various forms, in every subject and at all levels. Many 4/5 year olds come into school quite confident in using technology. Some children, however, have not had the experience of using a computer and need to learn the basic skills involved. I teach Junior Infants and we are lucky to have a computer room in our school, as well as computers/laptops in classrooms. Every Wednesday morning I spend three quarters of an hour in the computer room with my class.
