Coding in Clara NS

Modern education has to keep pace with the times and the advances in developing technology and indeed the younger generation is more capable of accepting and adjusting to technology than the older generation and that too is natural. They have difficulty in understanding and using the 'technology' of 50 years and more ago. In St. Patrick's National School, Clara, the pupils had a day of learning based on the technology. Ms. Parks spent the day with the pupils showing them how to write the coding so that they can control the movements of a robot with their iPad. These are the 'toys' of the modern age and employments of the future will demand a certain knowledge of this type of process and that learning is starting early with the pupils of Clara NS. They were certainly engrossed in what Ms. Parks was showing them and picking it up very quickly.
