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 (I.C.T.) skills alongside information literacy skills.
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 is a computer lab and each classroom has at least two operational computers and a network printer within the teaching block.
Students have access to other I.C.T. equipment such as iPads, scanners, digital cameras, DVD cameras, video editing software and multimedia resources.
All classes have a data projector.
Computers in learning
Information and communication skills are integral to planning and assessment in all learning areas.
Our teachers integrate I.C.T. 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' I.C.T. and information literacy skills.
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).
