The Learning Hub is equipped with 32 Macbooks and 32 ipads.
The Learning Hub also contains a variety of robots such as Bee Bots, Edisons Microbits and Sperhos that are used to help teach coding. Digital Technologies lessons are taught in the Learning Hub by a specialist teacher for 50 minutes each week for students from Pre Primary to Year Six. An integral component of the Digital Technologies is cyber safety and promoting responsible digital learners.
ICT General Capabilities are embedded throughout the curriculum. Ipads and macbooks are used to promote student engagement, motivation and excellence. Students are encouraged to use ICT to develop their skills in problem solving, critical thinking, creativity and communication.
