ICT is a tool for learning, but responsible use of ICT is also a vital skill for every child.
To participate in a knowledge-based economy and to be empowered within a technologically sophisticated society now and into the future, students need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make ICT work for them at school, at home, at work and in their communities.
Students develop knowledge, skills and dispositions around ICT and its use, and the ability to transfer these across environments and applications. They learn to use ICT with confidence, care and consideration, understanding its possibilities, limitations and impact on individuals, groups and communities.
At Rosary School students have continual access to ICT for learning. All learning areas have interactive screens or large Apple TVs.
Early Years classes use iPads and MacBooks to support learning in the classrooms.
