have access to some of the best available ICT at Hodgson. Pivotal to
their learning is an interactive website called Moodle. Teachers use
Moodle to upload their lessons to display on a classroom’s interactive
whiteboard. Students are then able to review or complete lessons and
homework on any computer with Internet access, 24/7. Any homework
completed on Moodle can be sent directly to the teachers, who are able
to monitor and assess the quality of homework produced. Special
arrangements can be made to give extra internet access to students
without a home computer.
We are committed to providing our students with an excellent education in a technologically advanced environment. The whole Academy is equipped throughout with the latest advances in technology. The Academy has six ICT suites and nine mobile suites of computers on wheels. Each classroom has a network point and interactive whiteboard, which is linked to our curriculum network and the Internet.
As an Academy, we have been able to provide additional resources in the subjects of design technology, science, mathematics and ICT. We have also incorporated cutting edge technological developments across other areas of the curriculum.
Hodgson’s SIMS Learning Gateway provides real-time information on each student. Parents can get secure electronic access to their own child’s attendance data, behaviour management information, achievement and timetable details.
