St Joseph’s Primary School Kangaroo Point is a school community striving to serve the needs of students in an authentic way. One of the School’s key learning and teaching principles is to utilise innovative pedagogical practices that effectively integrate technology. The 1:1 laptop program gives practical expression to this principle.
St Joseph’s Primary School aims to be a technology rich school integrating technology into all curriculum areas to enhance learning. In Year 5 students will hire a Net book from the School for their use throughout the year and for their use for the remaining two years of schooling. In 1:1 learning, each student has access to a wireless laptop to use at school and at home, enabling communication and collaboration among peers and teachers and connecting parents to their child’s learning. The 1:1 laptop program is cutting edge and enables students to experience growth in many areas - self confidence, organisation, motivation to learn and learning in a range of modalities.
