Use of technology
Technology is creating and shaping our present and our future. For students to become independent, collaborative and self-motivated learners, they need to be skilled in its use and applications in their daily social and working lives.
Kingswood College encourages each student to stretch the boundaries of their individual capabilities. As well as collaboration, creativity, discussion and research, a strong emphasis is placed on the use of resources and technology to help stimulate independent thinking.
iThink therefore iPad
Kingswood College’s iPad program provides students in Years 4-8 with easy access to digital information and resources. The program is designed to utilise the iPad in a way that leads our students and teachers to deeper levels of engagement, collaboration and creativity. Students are encouraged to discover, download and even create their own apps to help them create, manage, capture and organise their work. While within the online environment, students learn about their responsibilities as cyber-citizens as they acquire, manipulate and share information.
