Learning Technology

At Holy Spirit Infants we have a range of learning technologies our students have access to.

Teachers plan and collaborate in order to incorporate learning technologies across all Key Learning Areas. Teachers are regularly involved in training courses provided by the CSO and external providers. Teachers work collaboratively and share their knowledge and skills with colleagues.

The staff at Holy Spirit Infants believe the use of learning technologies in our everyday practices, better prepares students for the demands of an ever-changing, digital world. Technology is a tool embedded in teaching and learning.

Every classroom is fitted with an interactive television or SMART Board and projector, and laptops/desktops or ipads are utilised daily. The STEM room also has virtual conferencing capabilities.

The school has a variety of robotics including:

  • BeeBots
  • Dash and Dot Robots
  • Spheros

Students have coding lessons each term to develop their skills and capabilities and teachers incorporate coding into their technology time in the computer lab, as well as during different Key Learnings Areas.

All students develop skills of computational thinking, the creation and use of different levels of abstraction to better understand and solve problems.

We promote the safe and responsible use of these learning technologies, particularly when students are online. Students are taught to understand the behaviours and processes that will help them to act in a safe and responsible manner when using digital technologies.
