Technology

Technology Update!

 

In Technology this year all students will be encouraged to use their classroom technology throughout the day for specific tasks, these include desktop computers, laptops, interactive smart boards and ipads.  During structured technology lessons in our computer room students will be taught a range of computer based skills, providing all students with the opportunity to become competent, creative and productive users of technology. We use technology to develop knowledge and skills to support students' achievements as well as stimulating student engagement in learning. By developing these skills students are then able to select and use technology to inquire, create and communicate with others. This year our school will introduce a computer coding program called ‘Scratch'. Scratch is a visual programming language, students can create their own interactive stories, games and animations, then share and discuss their creations with one another. Programs such as this are the platform for the introduction of robotics. There will be some new and exciting opportunities for all students to engage with a variety of new technologies! More information will be available throughout the year. On a final note, we have just spent over $20 000, as we continue to upgrade the infrastructure based around technology, connecting more students with technology.
