Digital Technologies

Whilst learning about technology has long been a part of the Curriculum, the Digital Technologies Curriculum takes this a step further in enhancing the student’s ability to become problem solvers and critical thinkers. Cyber safety is an important part of the DT curriculum and is covered at all levels.

We have a large space that has been designed to be flexible and allow a range of activities to be carried out in the area.  Beebots, Ozobots, Spheros Codey Rockys and Microbits are robots used in activities to help with the problem solving process.  Unplugged activities are also taught, such as binary, algorithms, sorting, directions and looking at technology - both past and present.

Gordon Primary School has a variety of technology available to teachers and students to compliment learning. This includes an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) or Interactive Flat Panel Display (IFPD) in all classrooms, the staff room, the meeting room, the Resource Center and both Computer Labs. We have class sets of iPads in the Junior School (Years K-2) to support student learning.The Senior School (Years 3-6) operate a Bring Your Own Device program. If you would like more information about this, please ask the front office to make an appointment with the ICT Coordinator.
