Access to ICT and Digital Technology

Our classrooms have interactive whiteboards and LED Panels, wireless network access, laptops and digital tools and devices to provide anywhere, anytime access to ICT. We run a multi-platform environment, providing access to iPads and Windows based notebooks, laptops and desktops.

Housing enough computers for whole class access, the computer lab is an integral part of the Library. Prep to Year 2 classes are timetabled in the lab on a weekly basis. Years 3 to 6 make regular use of the school owned class sets of notebooks and laptops.

All students are registered to the online programs Mathletics and Reading Eggs.  These can both be accessed at school, as well as at home.

As part of our distinctive STEAM program we offer a range of digital technologies and resources to support these programs and student learning.  Some of these resources include:

  • Lego Mindstorms EV3
  • Spheros
  • Beebots
  • Ozobots
  • Dash and Dots
  • Makey Makey
  • Probots
  • Access to software such as Scratch and EV3 software, as well as a range of educational apps on our school iPads.

 

Our STEAM Room is open at first break to all students and is a popular playing area for Makerspace, robotic and coding activities.  We have Year 6 STEAM Mentors who assist our younger students during lunch time play.

STEAM - a distinctive program at Ascot State School provides further information about how we embed digital technologies, ICT Capabilities and STEAM at our school.
