Digital learning utilising ICT tools is an important part of learning programs at Edwardstown Primary School. Careful planning and budgeting over the years has maximised student access to these technologies. All classes have access to pods of laptops and iPads and each classroom has an interactive TV display. Classes use a multitude of online learning platforms in lessons to maximise student learning and engagement. Many year levels use online assessments to assess and track student learning and improvement. Older classes use Google Classrooms as an interactive learning platform, similar to those used in high schools. Seesaw is a platform used across the school (R-6) to share learning between school and home.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program
In Years 5 and 6 students have the ability to bring their own device, or laptops. At EPS, approved devices are Windows laptops. The BYOD program aims to develop students’ ability to use digital tools and navigate an online learning environment, using technology to transform and share their learning in engaging and creative ways. It is an expectation that personally owned devices meet specific requirements and all students agree to the Edwardstown PS BYOD User Agreement which outlines the safe and appropriate use of devices and the school network.
