At Highland Reserve State School, we recognise that a digitally rich environment enables teachers and students opportunities to:
- work collaboratively
- communicate ideas
- problem solve
Purpose built for 21st Century Learning, our school provides access to a wide range of digital resources that the school community can access throughout the school day and resources that students and families can access at home.
Each of our classrooms have laptop computers and iPads that have age appropriate, quality learning apps for each year level. In addition to these classroom ICT resources, we have an open learning space with 34 computers, where teachers can have their class work on projects and tasks together. We also have access to class sets of iPads, loaded with educational apps, that teachers can borrow for all students to be working on a device. Students have access to various zones across the school, where they can use various ICTs before school and during lunch breaks.
Having interactive touch panels in each room provides our teachers and students with rich opportunities to engage, actively participate and interact across lessons. To compliment the touch panels, our school subscribes to a number of online resources enabling teachers and students access to thousands of digital books, and other digital resources that support and enhance curriculum work.
We have a Green Room with green screen technology, allowing classes opportunities to create presentations and projects in a fun, engaging and creative way. Students and teachers have access to contemporary digital technologies like robots, drones, digital microscopes and robotics that enable students opportunities to program and code.
Highland Reserve State School are responsive to ongoing technological developments, and are committed to keeping up to date with emerging technologies that will enhance the way teachers teach and students learn in an information rich society.
