St Michael’s students access well-equipped facilities and up-to-date digital resources for their information and communication technology (ICT) activities. ICT capabilities are incorporated into the whole school curriculum.
Students from Foundation to Year 3 are provided with an iPad to use at school.
Students from Year 4 to 6 have their own iPad supplied by their family to enable them take their work from school to home.
We integrate the International Baccalaureate learner profile attributes into ICT based teaching and learning. We equip our students with the skills and knowledge to be safe, effective and confident users of ICT, understanding its possibilities, limitations and impact on individuals, groups and communities.
ICT learning provides students with the skills to make the most of the digital technology available to them, ways to adapt to new technology and it’s uses, and reducing risks to themselves and others in the digital environment.
In 2020 the need to rapidly move into a position to provide quality online learning for our students provided us with an opportunity to engage in specific professional learning on platforms such as Zoom, SeeSaw, Teams and Edmodo.
Education on the safe and responsible use of ICT teaches students how to act in a safe and responsible manner on the Internet and other connected environments. Cyber Safety workshops are conducted with students on or near Safer Internet Day in February and at other times during the year.
