Information Communication Technology (ICT)
At Albany Rise Primary School, students have access to many different forms of technology. We believe students need to be 21st Century learners. We allow students to learn from, manipulate and take action with technology. To use and understand the vast resourcefulness of technology, students are required to analyse, judge and interpret the information available to them. To do this, students are taught how to use technology appropraitely and effectively.
This year, we re-opened our new computer lab. We have made the area a flexible space and more connected to the library. Students on Junior School Council voted to call the area “The Hub”.
Each classroom has an interative whiteboard. This allows teachers and students to demonstrate and manipulate concepts with ease.
iPads and iPods
We have a class set of iPads (for Preps) and iPods for students to use. Students learn from, practice skills and create different projects from a range of apps.
In addition to our Computer Room, Levels 3 – 6 have access to 2 class sets of laptops.
This year students have been learning from and supporting their learning through the following programs. Students thoroughly enjoy working through the activities catered for the level. Students are able to use the programs both at school and at home.
Part of our ICT curriculum, students learn about Cyber Safety. It is important for students to understand the negative aspects of the internet and how to deal with different problems when they arise. We also believe that parents are key partners in teaching children about being cybersafe. The world of technology and social networking may be unfamiliar to parents. There are, however, many resources designed to help parents and children become cybersafe. For further information, clikc the links below or Parents Guide To Online Safety.
We are working towards becoming an eSmart School via the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.
