Information Computer Technology (I.C.T.)
Our School recognises the potential of I.C.T. as a learning tool.
At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School in 2016 all students in grades 3-6 have an iPad in addition to classroom banks of MacBooks. This iPad becomes an important tool for students who complete some of their classwork and homework on the device. As a GAFE school (Google Apps for Education) in 2016 we are embracing the Google range of Apps as educational tools and devices. We are really excited about the potential of this for our school and how we can best prepare our students for a modern and ever changing world.
All Early Childhood classes have access to banks of IPads as well as MacBooks and class teachers use these devices to facilitate and enhance all students' learning.
Our focus is on access to learning as well as creating safe digital citizens.
The school accesses online learning tools, apps and websites including:
- Reading eggs
- Xtra maths
- Spelling City
- Study Ladder
- Google Drive
- Google Classroom
