Information Communication Technology (ICT)
Yarra Glen Primary School has recently implemented STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) into our learning programs. The STEAM program ties in beautifully with our ICT, Robotics and coding programs. Robotics and coding are highly engaging programs for our students and it allows them to make mathematical and scientific connections in their learning activities. Their learning is absolutely incredible!
Our ICT program includes many forms of technology for the students to use, learn and engage with. Each classroom has a set of desktop computers, the senior students having access to a class computer pod. We also have desktops in our library, to cater for whole grades.
Students use iPad’s and iPad mini’s for many areas of their learning. As well as this, we are looking at incorporating android devices to allow students to experience various platforms. Students can play educational games, research, take photos and videos for projects, make movies and take control of their digital learning.
Our interactive whiteboards in our classrooms allow for interactive learning in an e-smart environment. The newly updated projectors in the senior building is an exciting upgrade to our school’s ICT resources.
As well as classroom desktops, we also have a bank of mobile laptops for students to use in the classroom and around the school.
ICT at Yarra Glen Primary School is progressive … keeping the students in touch with the world.
