INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT) PROGRAM

Beaumaris North Primary School provides an Information and Communication Technology program for all children as outlined in the Interdisciplinary Learning Strand of the AusVELS – ICT and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) Scope and Sequence.

We provide students with hands-on experience in computing technology products, processes and equipment. Laptops are timetabled for use by the whole school. This allows for further computer interface for all students in the school. These pods of laptops are paired with portable hardware such as digital cameras, video cameras, microphones and webcams. Our ICT program has been expanded to include the use of iPads to further extend the students' skills and provide an additional avenue for active learning.

All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards that cater for the many different learning styles of our children. Interactive learning encourages student engagement in all learning areas. In an age of technology, students are able to access interactive sites at the touch of a finger and work as a whole class in Inquiry learning. Students are able to participate in ‘hands on learning’ in a supportive environment.

Our ICT Program commences in Prep and culminates in Year 6 with the production of Movies and DVDs, audio recording, animation creation and other dynamic projects.
