ICT in the Curriculum and One to One Program
At Buxton Primary School computers are an important educational tool integrated across the school curriculum. Students have access to the school’s computer network in the classroom through their Chromebook laptops and iPads. Students also have access to a wide variety of ICT experiences and will develop a range of useful skills. We use Google Apps of Education, including tools such as Google Drive and Google Classroom. Our students have become proficient in using these online collaborative tools effectively.
Online and digital safety are paramount for our students, and we are a registered eSmart School. We have strong content filters enabled and regularly teach students about online safety and privacy. We have run workshops with Kids Helpline and Project Rockit for parents and students.
The School has an internet usage policy and both students and parents need to sign a contract which outlines acceptable computer and internet usage.
