Learning Technologies

  Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is an integral part of our curriculum. Our ICT resources are used to enrich and enhance student learning experiences.
  Every classroom is equipped with a number of PC's,  with every student in Grades 3-6 having the use of their own Netbook (for their Primary School life) funded by an ongoing partnership between the school and RATCH Australia.  Each classroom and Project space has a state of the art Interactive Whiteboard.

Students leaving Toora Primary School at the end of Grade 6 are experienced and proficient in the use of Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint. Students also use Adobe software to create movies and interactive shows and the Ultranet to develop electronic learning portfolios.

Students have access to abundant ICT resources such as Flip cameras, digital cameras,  video cameras, projectors, photocopiers and scanners.
Our ICT curriculum is divided into three dimensions which use ICT for visualising thinking, creating and communicating. The knowledge, skills and behaviours identified for this domain enable students to:
  • develop new thinking and learning skills that produce creative and innovative insights
  • develop more productive ways of working and solving problems individually and collaboratively
  • create information products that demonstrate their understanding of concepts, issues, relationships and processes
  • understand the implications of the use of ICT and their social and ethical responsibilities as users of ICT
