Technology

Our Lady of the Southern Cross Primary School believes in a Digital Citizenship model for supporting the safe and responsible use of the internet in a teaching and learning context. Our Lady of the Southern Cross Primary School defines a successful digital citizen as an individual who;

●      uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities

●      uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspace

●      is literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies

●      is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively

●      uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways

●      demonstrates honesty and integrity in their use of ICT

●      respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world

●      contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship

 

We embrace technology as a means of enabling students to:

  • be active in leading their learning
  • discover, co-create and articulate knowledge & understanding
  • connect, apply and use new knowledge in authentic contexts
  • learn anywhere at any time

We believe the teaching of cyber safety and responsible online behaviour is essential in the lives of students and is best taught in partnership between the school and home.
