The Winstedt School embraces technology not only as an education tool, but also as a fundamental skill for personal and professional success.
Reception through Year 3 students leverage iPads in the classroom as an early introduction to navigating and utilising technology via the use of tailored academic and creative applications.
Year 4 and above utilise laptops throughout the day, learning the Microsoft Office suite, tailored academic and creative applications, keyboarding, digital safety awareness as well as technical skills in coding.
Each classroom is equipped with a SMART Board to deploy interactive lessons and expose students to technology.
Assistive Technology is part of every classroom, providing teachers with exceptional tools that help address the different learning styles within the school. These tools are used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of students with learning differences.
All students in Year 4 and above are required to bring a personal laptop to school each day. Laptops will be used in class for specific academic activities. Students are not permitted to use their laptops, or any other personal devices before or after school on school premises, or during lunch, recess, and class breaks.
