ICT

 

Junior

Our Foundation classes have access to 40 iPads or iPad minis. The Year 1/2s have 60 Samsung Galaxy tablets to use, and can also use networked multimedia notebooks.

Students in the Junior School use the computers to help develop literacy and numeracy skills, basic word processing and presentations skills. We also encourage and support the creative use of IT – recording learning to explain it later, capturing a construction to describe, rehearsing reading or a play.

Senior

Students in Years 3-6 are able to bring their own tablet device to school as part of our BYOTablet program. In combination with school-supplied netbooks, this enables 1:1 computing in Years 3-6.

Senior student usage focuses more around collaborative projects, multimedia authoring, game development, spread sheets and research. Senior students create their own video productions that involve specified content, scripts, props and editing.

They use Skype, or similar, to contact students in our sister schools, in Mongolia and China.

They access homework tasks and day to day learning tasks via a Weebly, that enables peer to peer and teacher to student interaction.

Across the school

Every student creates a digital record of some of their work over the course of the year. Mathletics and Literacy Planet access is available to all students and is mainly used for homework tasks.

We have resourced every classroom with digital projectors or Apple TVs and interactive technology. We continually assess our hardware for currency, as well as forming industry links, to optimise our ICT potential, giving students amazing opportunities to personalise their learning.
