Students develop Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas. Students solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school.

ICT involves students in learning to make the most of the digital technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment.

Keep Students Safe

Grace Primary was lucky enough to be rewarded a grant to help start the eSmart journey.

What is eSmart?

eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence.
Our work towards achieving eSmart status will involve the whole school community. We will be integrating Cyber Safety into our policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

For further information about the eSmart program, visit the eSmart website at www.esmartschools.org.au.

Access to Resources

  • Interactive Whiteboards
    • All classrooms have access to this interactive technology.
    • These boards are touch sensitive and help teachers access resources to support lessons as well as prove to be a way of involving students and engaging them in learning experiences.
  • iPads
    • All classes from Prep-6 have access to iPads via a trolley of devices that can be borrowed for a whole class or via small pods of iPads that are housed in classrooms and used as a regular tool to support learning on a daily basis.
  • 1-1 Lap Top Program
    • Students in Years 5&6 have access to their own lap top computer which can be used at school and at home.
    • This digital tool is a valuable resource to support students to develop readiness for Middle Schooling and proficiency in areas involving research and organisation in a digital environment.
  • Classroom computers
    • All classrooms have access to banks of computers that can be used for whole class and small group learning experiences.
    • Students use the computer to support skill development but also for creative pursuits such as publishing and communication.

At Grace Primary, ICTs transform the ways that students think and learn and give them greater control over how, where and when they learn.
