At Ballan Primary School, we believe that digital technologies are an important and vital tool for each student's education. We deliver a program which is supported both in the classroom and through our dedicated specialist program.
Our Digital Technologies program includes many types of devices to engage with. Additionally, each classroom in the Junior and Middle School has access to class sets of iPads, while the Senior school uses has an allocation of laptops for every student.
Students are involved in authentic, hands-on learning that aims to push their boundaries. They gain experience in:
- Digital citizenship and cyber safety
- Design and digital systems
- Data representation
- Computational thinking
Activities can be online and offline and include playing educational games, conducting research, presenting data, taking photos and videos for projects, making movies and using visual programming languages to control a device such as a robot.
