Digital Technologies

Digital Technologies Curriculum provides students with opportunities to use Digital Technologies to enhance and engage in their learning. Practical applications of technologies allow students to develop dexterity and coordination whilst offering them a broad range of learning experiences which they can apply to home, life and the wider community. Cybersafety practices are taught as part of the Curriculum, educating students in the safe and expected behaviours regardless of their physical location.

At Katandra School the students have access to 1:1 iPads as well as a laptop fleet. New software and applications are regularly purchased to allow students to access new and innovative programs whilst catering to their individual needs. Students engage in programs using Interactive Smartboards and assistive technology where required to assist them with communication.

Students also have had the oppurtunity to learn coding through the use of robotics and digitial platforms. In 2019 students will have the oppurtunity to design and create 3D objects using software on our newly purchased 3D printers. This has underpinned learning in units of Inquiry, Literacy and Numeracy.
