Innovative and effective use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) will support our challenging and dynamic learning environment that equips students with the skills to be active and successful members of the 21st century global society. Technology is embraced by the school community and the school educates students and families in regard to cyber safety. Since 2013, we have focused on developing our whole-school understanding of responsible and safe online interactions in accordance with the eSmart Framework. As a result, Huntingdale Primary School has achieved the status of an eSmart School in 2017.
Appropriate investment in infrastructure will transform pedagogy, empower teachers and support staff to focus on student-centred active and interactive learning as well as facilitate higher order thinking. We support flexible teaching methods and aim to cater for different learning styles through the integration of technologies. All of our teaching and learning programs infuse some form of technology with all classrooms being equipped with Interactive Whiteboards or Apple TVs. Personal computers, netbooks and iPads are provided in classrooms as tools to create, collaborate and communicate.
The ICT team has been working towards increasing interactive communication among teachers, parents and students. Grade 3-6 students have their own Edmodo account to work on online individual and group tasks.
