Our Digital Technology Strategy recognises the important role technology plays in achieving the wider aims and aspirations of our School. The strategy considers three aspects of digital technologies:
- Learning through digital technologies – using technology to enhance teaching and learning throughout the curriculum
- Learning about digital technologies – ensuring our students are being equipped with core technology skills
- Learning with digital technologies – utilising technology to maximise the efficiency of school processes and communication to support our teaching and learning goals
Our aim is to develop smart, safe and savvy users of technology.
Learning Through Digital Technologies
Google docs is utilised school-wide and across a variety of curriculum areas to support collaborative learning and to allow students to access their work from any location, including at home. All students have a Google account that teachers use to communicate work and that students can use to access a variety of tools. This facilitates sharing of information and creates a community of learning.
Classrooms are equipped with projectors and 1:2 Chromebooks are available in every room. Students utilise devices and technology where it is appropriate to enhance the learning experience.
Learning About Digital Technologies
Increased access to a range of devices and integration of digital technologies into a wide range of curriculum areas ensures all students have ample opportunity to utilise digital technologies in a variety of ways.
Learning With Digital Technologies
Our student management system has functionality that has been implemented to improve management systems and support teachers. Email facilities and a comprehensive web site are already in place to support communication with our community. The introduction of email newsletters has further streamlined these communications as well as the development of additional electronic interfaces including parent portals for payments and to view students’ work and the use of our school App.
