Welcome to the Multimedia Centre
Hi, I’m Christiaan Van Taarling, the Multimedia teacher. Children at St Albans East will receive a 1 hour Multimedia lesson each week. The aim of these lessons is to develop the knowledge and skills in the use of multimedia equipment and computer software and then apply the knowledge and skills in their life and other areas of learning. Competencies learnt in multimedia are applied to other curriculum areas and affect all facets of their life. Therefore Multimedia seeks to create skills that benefit students as lifelong learners. Multimedia is not just about computers, many of the activities that the children will be involved in use cameras, printers, scanners and even robots. They will use communication resources to communicate and collaborate, including email, Wikis, Ultranet and other collaborative websites.
I look forward to having the opportunity to work with your children. If you would like to know about Information Communication technology in relation to your child both at school and at home Please come and see me.
Christiaan Van Taarling.
