At Furness Academy, students have access to their own one-to-one device, to support learning. We use a Windows 10 device, which allows our students to create and consume content.
The production of work can be completed by typing on the keyboard, utilising the touchscreen or converting the device into tablet mode. This allows students to choose the input method that bests suits them or the task being completed.
We would like all students to have access to their own one-to-one device to support learning within school and at home, providing access to learning whenever and, more importantly, wherever they want; breaking down the walls of the classroom.

More than ever, students need a range of skills to allow them to reach their full potential in their future career paths beyond Furness Academy. All roles, at whatever level, have an expectation that young people can use technology effectively.

This is achieved by coherent development through all areas of the curriculum, not just in isolation through ICT lessons. Being proficient in the use of digital technology helps to give Furness Academy students an ‘edge’ in the wider world of work and study.
