At Katandra West Primary School, we aim to offer our students opportunities to use digital technologies in meaningful ways. As a result, we place technology in the hands of our students to compliment the outstanding programs that take place. Part of our strategy is a 1:1 iPad program for students in Years 4, 5 and 6.
Our current use of iPads has placed a greater focus on integrating mobile device technology and a shift away from the more traditional methods of desktop computing. This has been done to ensure Katandra West Primary School continues to lead the way in using up to date digital technologies and resources to best benefit our students.
In addition to the iPads, students from Foundation through to Year 6 will have access to netbooks and desktops to ensure they are exposed to a wide range of digital technologies.
