At Regency Park PS, digital technologies are used to facilitate personalised and authentic learning within an integrated approach across all areas of the curriculum. Professional learning will enable teachers to develop students' capabilities to become innovative and confident users of a range of technologies.
Our philosophy to the use of digital technology is that it can provide teachers with one more approach to provide the best possible learning for our students. The purpose and learning intention of each lesson will determine which technology, if any, is required to maximise learning.
All classrooms have interactive whiteboards which are used to provide engaging activities in all areas of the curriculum. Complementing the teachers use of technology is the development of the students’ own ICT skills. Based on the Victorian curriculum, students from Prep – 6 move through a sequential framework of skill development and have regular access to a range of digital technologies, including desktop computers, laptops, ipads and digital cameras.
Recently we have introduced a Robotics club for interested Grade 5 and 6 students using EV3 lego mindstorm equipment.
