Welcome

ict-welcomeWelcome to our ICT Department Blog

Welcome to our very first ICT blog!  We are hoping that this blog will not only provide us with a platform to showcase the marvelous learning that takes place at RAKAA, but also an opportunity to share our work and experiences with one another. 

With this in mind we thought it would be useful to talk about what is on each blog page.

Events- Safer Internet DAY- ICT department flagship program for in-school activation, aiming at creating awareness on cyber safety will be observed on February 9, 2021.

ICT fair is a great idea, students are pleased to have the opportunity to get advice about potential career choices for their future. This is being held by ICT Department every Academic Year , Term 2. 

At RAKAA, we actively promote internet safety and it is important for everyone (especially children) who use the blog to understand how to use it and the internet in a safe way.  For the children who are using the blog, they will be using and applying skills that they are expected to learn in the newly aligned Curriculum objectives for Computing inline with UAE National Agenda 2021.  To do this, the following guidelines have been established to ensure the safety of our pupils when using our blog which will not only consolidate the children’s computing skills but also help improve and consolidate their Literacy skills too.
