Embedding Digital Technologies @ Algester

 

Our teachers use iPads, laptops, desktops and interactive boards to enhance learning. From 2018, every classroom in Algester Primary School, will be a shared iPad classroom, where every student will have their own BYOD iPad or access to a shared school device between two students. 

Students who share school devices are not permitted to take them home.  Our experience is that transformational learning only occurs when students have access to their own devices so all parents are encouraged to provide a device for their children to use at school and at home.

Algester Primary School has been recognised by the Metropolitan Education Region as a leader in this field and is part of the #qldtechschools program.  Algester Primary School has also been acknowledged by Apple Computers as a digital leader and is part of their Towards Apple Transformation Program.

Algester Primary School takes much pride in being one of the first schools in the Region to be implementing the Australian Curriculum's Digital and Design Technologies Learning Areas across the school.  We are confidently preparing your children for a future of work that strongly embraces technology and the 21st century learning skills of collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving and innovation.

All students are required to have a signed Internet Access Agreement (PDF, 356k)​ upon enrolment at our school.

 

 We love to use technology in our learning!
