Digital 'champion' visits Bantry school

30 January, 2015

LORD David Puttnam, in his capacity as ‘Ireland’s Digital Champion’ visited Saint Finbarr’s Boys’ National School of Bantry last week.

Puttnam was accompanied by Sean Kelly, chairman of the Board of Management, as they heard about the school’s involvement in digital media and the positive benefits of technology in education.    

The younger classes enjoyed an enthusiastic discussion with Lord Puttnam about the educational benefits of Google Earth and Apps such as ‘Save the Pencil’.  

Puttnam enthused them all by exploring the advantages of their Edmodo system, in which the children can, and have, safely shared photographs and experiences of foreign and national trips.
