Dissolving Boundaires through Information and Communication Technology

Dissolving Boundaries uses Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to facilitate cross-cultural educational linkages between schools in Northern Ireland and the South of Ireland and is jointly funded by the two governments. 

This cross – community programme is organised by the University of Ulster and the National University Ireland. While working on the programme Year 10 pupils from Bangor Academy and Sixth Form College worked with pupils from Finn Valley College, Co Donegal.   Both schools used the Virtual Learning Environment ‘Moodle’ to communicate on the online forum. 

Pupils also designed a joint wed page and evaluated each others work.   The highlight of the programme was the face to face meeting at Portrush this year were pupils participated in body boarding, archery and team building activities. A great day was had by all!!
