At Bayview State School, to prepare students for the 21st century and to meet the ICT requirements embedded in the Australian Curriculum the integration of technology into the classroom is necessary. The way in which teachers and students communicate and engage in the teaching and learning process is fundamentally altered when technology is embedded. The BYO iPad program is a priority of Bayview State School. Purposeful access to ICT increases personalisation of learning, creative thinking, collaboration, engagement and academic achievement.
We believe that balanced and appropriate use of technology can stimulate interest, increase proficiency and support differentiated learning pathways for our students
Learning can be extended beyond the walls of the classroom, enabling students to continue their learning anywhere, anytime. While digital tools can be used to support and enhance teaching practice and learning experiences, technology does not change what it takes to learn. The teacher, through their guidance and explicit direction of the learning journey and the students, through their motivation and work output remain the most critical factor within every classroom.
The BayView State School BYO iPad Program enables:
Enhanced learning effeciency with personalised student learning in an engaging and interactive environment
Development of knowledge and skills necessary for the 21st century
Strengthens links between home and school providing parents with transparent communication.
