We aim to develop the children's skills and competence to use ICT to find, analyse, communicate and present information and control technology.
The children will learn how to use the Internet to complete tasks such as researching and will learn, using a range of programs, to collect, analyse, evaluate and present data and information. E-safety will remain a very important part of the curriculum and will be covered by all year groups.
In addition to these areas, children will also be taught what algorithms are, how to design and write programs, including those involving repetition and sequencing and learn how to debug programs.
At The Marist we have Interactive White Boards and visualisers in all of the classrooms, Internet links throughout and networked classroom computers. We also have two whole class sets of laptops which are networked through our school-wide wireless system. We have a computer suite with other ICT resources including microscopes, microphones, Beebots, Probots, flip cameras, digital cameras and 'Digi-Blues' for making films.
