ICT is an integral part of teaching and learning at St Joseph's. We endeavour to give each child the opportunity to develop appropriate skills, to prepare them for a society where ICT is present in every facet of life.
1:1 Chromebook Program Years 5 and 6
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is a community striving to serve the needs of students in an authentic way. One of the School’s key learning and teaching principles is to utilise innovative pedagogical practices that effectively integrate technology. The 1:1 Chromebook program gives practical expression to this principle.
We aim to be a technology rich school integrating technology into the curriculum to enhance learning. Students in Years 5 and 6 students are supplied with a Chromebook for their use at school. In 1:1 learning, each student has access to a wireless Chromebook to use at school, enabling communication and collaboration among peers and teachers and connecting parents to their child’s learning through the Google Chrome suite. The 1:1 Chromebook program enables students to experience growth in many areas - self-confidence, organisation, motivation to learn and learning in a range of modalities.
