Computer and internet

 

At Buddina State School we aim to prepare our students for the rapid changes they will face in a technological society. We provide our students with the necessary resources to develop both information and communication technology (ICT) skills alongside information literacy skills.



Hardware

  • The school is fully networked, with fibre optic connections between all classroom blocks.

  • The school has a ratio of 1:4 computers to students throughout the school.

  • There are three computer labs located around the school campus accessed by all students from Prep to Year 6.

  • As well as the computer labs, each classroom has a least two operational computers and a network printer within the teaching block.

  • Students have access to other ICT equipment such as Ipads, scanners, digital cameras, DVD cameras, video editing software and multimedia resources.

  • All classes have a data projector. 

Software

  • Buddina State School is a partner in the Education Queensland Microsoft software agreement, enabling all students full use of the Microsoft Office suite of programs 

Computers in learning

  • Information and communication skills are integral to planning and assessment in all learning areas.

  • Our teachers integrate ICT skills into curriculum delivery, planning, assessment and reporting. In the development of each unit of work, year level teaching teams work with the Head of Curriculum in planning tasks that enhance learning and develop students' ICT and information literacy skills.

Internet Access

  • Students have carefully managed access to the Internet and Email as appropriate.

  • Students have a class email address from Prep to Year 3. 

  • Students in Years 4 to 6 are provided with their personal email address which remains active while they remain a student with Education Queensland.

  • All networked computers within the school are connected to the Internet, to allow students access to online content and services wherever they are in the school, (as part of Education Queensland’s Smart Classrooms strategy).
