The provision of superfast broadband in schools is essential to ensure that Ireland’s students are equipped with the technological resources they need to flourish in today’s modern school system and digital economy. Virgin Media is supplying its superfast 100 Mbps fibre broadband to schools throughout Ireland under the National Schools Broadband Scheme including Adamstown Community College in County Dublin.
“Adamstown Community College is a vibrant and modern new school delivering the highest standards of learning and education. Information technology facilities at the school are state-of-the-art including computer tablets, broadband wireless internet access throughout, an advanced design and communication graphics classroom, a student information data base which has parental access and radio frequency I.D. cards (RFID) for students (including e-commerce transaction capability). “The school uses all of the latest advanced educational systems and methodologies to ensure the best possible learning experience for students.
The library also has a major literacy enhancement initiative in place using specialist education technology. “With a capacity for 1,000 students, Adamstown provides educational programmes for the junior certificate, transition year and leaving certificate cycles. It was built through a €14m investment by the Department of Education and Skills under the patronage of Dublin & Dun Laoghaire Education Training Board (DDLETB). In 2014, students from Adamstown helped Virgin Media to launch ‘The Web We Want’ - an educational handbook written by children for children aged 13-16. This is an EU initiative produced in co-operation with partners including Virgin Media and the European Schoolnet.
“The National Broadband for Schools Programme is managed by HEAnet and the 100 Mbps High Speed Schools Network is co-sponsored by the Department of Communications, Energy & Natural Resources and the Department of Education and Skills.”
