IT at Platinum embraces change and keeps pace with current practices and modernisation of early education. At Platinum we use Smart Boards, iPads, Osmo kits and computers to ensure that children have the essential experience and understanding to tackle a modern primary school classroom.
We incorporate IT into our lessons and the children respond in such a positive way to the technology. Their skill development is amazing and we are here to nurture and enhance it!
Our rotational groups each morning allow the 3yr – 5yr olds to have a lesson in the computer room. The 2 year olds (at our Randwick Campus) have their lesson in the computer room in the afternoon. The activities that take place in the computer room are literacy and numeracy based and are presented on the Smart Board, Laptops and iPads.
When teaching the children about IT, not only to include it in the programmes, but also to teach them how to care for and use the equipment. We have lessons on how to use IT, which are modeled by the teacher, and then the children are supervised while they explore and practice their skills.
On a regular basis we introduce new cutting edge technologies that are beginning to blur the lines between between physical and digital education.
