Welcome to the Blackrock College Digital Learning Department.
The available computer resources have steadily expanded over the years. From 50 personal computers 12 years ago we now have more than 150 computers and 54 mobile netbooks.
Our network infrastructure is now highly advanced and has evolved over the years under the control of the school’s Maintenance Department.
Every classroom is equipped with a media centre to enhance the learning experience.
We also have a specialist computer laboratory with 28 computers. The computer lab is also used for night time computer courses.
Our DCG (Design Communication & Graphics) classroom has 23 state of the art computers which run the very latest graphics software.
The new Digital Learning Centre will be equipped with various types of tablets and BYODs to encourage individual and group learning.
The newly re-designed website will keep parents, students, staff and prospective parents up to-date on College activities.
Our new email and VLE system will be extended to all students in 2014. A VLE is a virtual classroom that allows teachers and students to communicate with each other online.
A new students’ management information system was implemented in the last year. We plan to roll this out to the parents in the future. Parents will be able to view their son’s personal details, timetable and all issued school reports.
