The Digital Technologies curriculum enables students to become confident and creative developers of digital solutions through the application of information systems and specific ways of thinking about problem solving.
At Cape Clear Primary School we have implemented a 1:1 iPad program where all students have access to their own device. We use many applications across all curriculum areas to support student learning. Students also have access to laptops, which are used to allow students to acquire a deep knowledge and understanding of digital systems, data and information and the processes associated with creating digital solutions so they can take up an active role in meeting current and future needs. We aim to be innovative and purposeful in our use of digital technologies at Cape Clear Primary School. Technology is integrated into teaching and learning from Foundation and students explore a wide use of technology including collaborating with peers and showcasing creativity.
We are a 1:1 iPad school which allows for the authentic and flexible use of technology. Students also have access to robotics, coding curriculum and smart TVs to further foster collaboration, problem solving and sharing of work. As an eSmart school, we understand that digital safety is crucial for our students and teach cyber safety and digital literacy at every year level.
The curriculum has been designed to provide practical opportunities for students to explore the capacity of information systems to systematically and innovatively transform data into digital solutions through the application of computational, design and systems thinking. The curriculum also encourages students to be discerning decision makers by considering different ways of managing the interactions between digital systems, people, data and processes (information systems) and weighing up the possible benefits and potential risks for society and the environment.
