Colac south west primary school
At Colac South West we have a strong commitment to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and what it can do in the Classroom. Significant resources have been allocated to enhance the provision of technology within the school. Our school is supported by two onsite technicians, who provide support across all areas of ICT within the school to ensure that the school’s infrastructure is the best it can be.
All of our Classrooms are furnished with interactive whiteboards which are used to create and explore meaningful learning opportunities. Foundation students love using their class set of iPads on a daily basis to assist with reading rotations, maths and buddy activities, and to share their learning with their parents via Class Dojo.
Students in Years 1-6 enjoy the use of individual Notebooks to access all areas of the curriculum. Students engage in a variety of learning content using websites such as Literacy Planet, Epic, Mathletics. Throughout the year students learn how to publish their work using the Microsoft Office suite, how to stay safe online and how to work collaboratively on projects in a digital world.
We are very mindful about cybersafety at Colac South West. We are an eSmart accredited school, and are constantly in the process of teaching our students about cybersafety and responsible, informed use of technology.
At Colac South West, we are dedicated to creating a learning environment that uses technology as a resource for students to communicate, connect, work and learn.
