The Ambassador has provided specialist lessons in Digital Technologies for students and also professional development for our teaching staff.

Students engage in the following digital learning programs as part of our four-year strategic plan:

 

Robotics Program: 

The program is implemented in two forms by our QLD Tech Ambassador and class teachers:

Classroom Robotics:

which all students participate in (30 - 40 minute lessons per week). This is clearly aligned with the Australian Curriculum Technologies

Robotics Club: 

This is for selected students from Years 4, 5 and 6 who show interest and ability in basic robotics and programming

IPads for Learning Program: 

IPads are utilised to enhance and motivate student learning in our priority improvement area of reading. The iPad are loaded with curriculum apps which were clearly aligned with the school curriculum and shared amongst year level cohorts. Professional Development is provided for teaching staff in the most effective use of iPads as tools for learning to improve classroom pedagogy and student learning outcomes.

Laptops for Learning Program: 

Four laptop docking stations with 20 laptop in each are utilised by our students in Years 2 and 6.  These computers are used to integrate digital technologies into the wider curriculum. They are also used as an adjustment for individual students to access the curriculum.

Our Computer Hub has recently been upgraded to ensure that we have the latest computer technology. The Computer Hub has 30 newly purchased computers which are networked to our school network and have access to our school's broadband internet.
