ICT is an integral part of learning at Ballam Park Primary School. Our school is committed to providing all students with skills and experience using ICT to broaden, enhance and enrich their learning. All students are exposed to a wide range of multimedia developments with access to touch screen netbooks, laptops and iPads. Middle and senior school students also have their own XO computer – a new personal system that can run as a laptop or tablet. Each classroom and specialist area is also equipped with an interactive whiteboard.
Students are guided to become confident, responsible users and are exposed to a broad range of programs and digital literacy. They also learn about cybersafety from their prep year. Students use educational software and sites such as Microsoft Office, Mathletics, Lexia, Studyladder and Renaissance Learning. They also use manipulative programs, iPad apps, typing programs and XO apps.
