Information Communications Technology (ICT) is the effective integration of a range of technologies across all areas of schooling - to support student learning. These technologies encompass a range of media, tools, environments and resources - including rich, interactive, online resources.
Our school takes great pride in the wide variety of ICT technology available to students in all areas of the school. As well as each classroom having an interactive whiteboard, access to class sets of notebook computers and tablets, at least 5 classroom computers, we also have a well resourced computer labs which the students visit each week to learn and develp skills which are then utilised in reading and maths activities in the classrooms.
Deepdene Primary School has created an environment where the use of ICT is regarded as an integral part of our everyday practices and administration management.
We recognise the future impact of ICT on our students' lives, therefore encouraging our students and staff to develop their skills and abilities through promoting intellectual and physical competence in communicating and promoting problem solving strategies. We also strongly support our students and staff to take increasing responsibility for their own learning.
ICT enables our professional and skilled staff to work as a highly effective team. To ensure the delivery of a comprehensive, balanced curriculum we use an integrated curriculum approach.
