At St Gabriel’s Primary School, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) will be used as a tool to support and empower learning and thinking. Our students will have the opportunity to develop skills that will equip them to become responsible, competent and active members of the global community. Students will use the ICT facilities for learning, research, communication and collaboration.
St. Gabriel's has an abundance of ICT resources in our school, which supports learning at all year levels.
In Year 5/6 we have continued to implement our 1-to-1 learning device program. Our iPad program supports our push to create a contemporary learning environment which offers flexibility and opportunities for independence, collaboration, connectivity to global resources and learning anywhere, anytime. Students in Year 5/6 are required to have their own iPad.
The Year Prep to Year 4 classrooms are equipped with laptop computers, some rooms have Interactive Whiteboards, whilst others have large screen TVs for whole class instruction.
We have a class set of iPad’s used in the Year 1/2 and Year 3/4 learning areas.
Throughout 2017 we have worked to introduce a more structured approach to coding and robotics. We are seeking to highlight the significance of STEM throughout our curriculum
