Technology


At Yackandandah Primary School we recognise that technology is only going to become more prominent in the lives of our children as time goes on. We want students to use technology to its full, without becoming slaves to it.

 

Currently students in Yrs. 5 & 6 lease a notebook computer for their personal use.

 

Students in other classes have access to other computers and devices on a shared basis.

 

Far more important than any hardware is how the technology is used for learning. We are continually investigating how to best help students become confident and discerning users of Information Technology products and services. Students at Yackandandah Primary School learn how to work in virtual environments alongside traditional learning environments. They learn to be discerning consumers of produced content and creators of content.
