Through the use of an integrated approach, students are preparing the skills they will need to be curious and lifelong learners.
Marysville Primary places great emphasis on the use of Information Technologies to support the curriculum. We run a successful 1:1 program providing all students in Prep – 1 with their own iPad. Students in grades 2 – 6 have their own laptop computer. The devices are kept at school and sent home on weekends for the students to use. Whiteboards and projectors are installed in each classroom. These allow the teachers to teach specific skills and give software demonstrations. Students use a range of educational apps and display their work for the class.
Our major focus is on:
The students at Marysville have access to a wide variety of digital technologies. To ensure that these forms of learning are used well, we teach students cyber safety skills using a variety of interactive programs which are tailored to age-appropriate levels.
