We have a long history of using technology to enhance learning. We know that appropriate use of a range of software programmes and communication tools can have a very positive impact on student learning and achievement.
From Grade 2 to 6, students are required to bring an i-Pad to school every day. In Grades 7-12, students must have a laptop and as they progress, are required to make increasingly smart choices as to when it is appropriate to use technology to support their learning.
We are aware that using technology to support learning has many advantages but there may also be dangers. Teachers work hard with students and parents to ensure that technology is used appropriately as just one form of learning. It is important that technology does not cause too much distraction or an unbalance in focus for students.
