Wifi classes in action at Govan High School


Our Foundation loves to hear updates on the people we have helped, especially when we get the chance to revisit them and see the benefits first hand.

Recently, Realising Dreams Foundation Trustee, Johan Kerr had the chance to go to Govan High School to see how introduction of wifi is improving the pupils’ access to learning in the classroom.

Back in June 2015 Realising Dreams Foundation contributed funding to install wireless internet access for the high school. It provides a vital link to additional education resources in a deprived area of Scotland.

Johan visited an S2 Geography class and saw first hand how they combine use school tablets and access to the internet to enhance classroom lessons.

Govan HS Geography teacher, Mr Michael McCarron said: ‘’The use of technology like tablets in the classroom makes learning interactive and more interesting for the pupils.

“At their fingertips they have a wealth of extra information on the internet so they can improve and direct their own learning. We certainly get the most out of these lessons and the pupils are engaged. We are grateful to the Realising Dreams for helping make it all happen.”
