Kangaroo Island Community EducationInformation and Communication Technology Portal

Rationale

In the 21st Century we all live in a technology and media-driven environment, marked by access to an abundance of information, rapid changes in technology tools and the ability to collaborate and make individual contributions on an unprecedented scale. Effective citizens and workers must be able to exhibit a range of functional and critical thinking skills using Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Goals

Our goal is for students to use IT devices as a tool to support key processes in learning - accessing, organising, processing and publishing information, collaboration, creativity and communication - and for staff to use them as an environment to facilitate deeper engagement in learning and higher-ordering thinking.

Programme Information

All students from years 4 to 7 have a KICE supplied iPad and students in years 8 to 12 have a KICE supplied laptop to support their learning at school and home.
