At the Eveline day School we believe that it is important that all pupils develop an understanding of the role of ICT and learn a range of transferable skills to prepare them for challenges that lie ahead.
We have a secure computer running in all of the classrooms with Internet Access. A specialist teacher gives weekly 45 minute lessons to students from Years 1 to 6. We have interactive whiteboards that are available for all of the children to use.
Digital cameras and camcorders are available for field trips and pictures taken can be downloaded to the network.
Pupils will learn to use the latest word processing, emailing, spreadsheet and database packages and learn to create a multimedia presentation using text, images and sound. Pupils will also learn about animation and how to construct a Web page. They will be given the opportunity to learn about a variety of general topics, such as rules for working with ICT, saving and printing and respecting other pupils' work.
We aim to equip pupils with the ability to find, explore, analyse and present information using various software packages. Students are provided with opportunities to be creative, develop critical thinking skills, and undertake ICT projects independently.
