Rosamond Special School

eLearning

Our students regularly access Information and Communication Technologies within our classroom programs. We are well resourced with a range of equipment including Interactive Whiteboards, iPads, Laptop and Netbook computers, digital cameras and videos, digital microphones, and gaming consoles. Our ICT equipment is used to support and extend students’ learning and provide greater opportunities to develop valuable knowledge and skills, and to make learning meaningful and fun.

 

Each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard, a number of work stations and all have wireless connectivity. We use software that can construct learning experiences and have broad, flexible learning outcomes. Our students use a range of planning, graphing, creativity, presentation, design, research, problem solving, communication and editing programs, as well as visual arts and music programs. They also use a range of Web 2.0 and gaming resources including online calendars, Wiki’s, Mind Mapping programs, Google Earth, Digital stories, online texts, “StudyLadder”, and the DEECD’s new Online Learning Environment: the Ultranet. These resources give our students a scaffold in which to construct real and meaningful learning outcomes.
