ICT and BYOD iPad Program

At Sorrento Primary School, we use technology in the classroom to extend our opportunities. We use technology not to replace traditional methods, but to find entirely new ways to innovate, inspire and learn.

Developing ICT Capability

Students at Sorrento Primary School develop Information, and Communication Technology (ICT) capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately. They access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school and in their lives beyond school.

At Sorrento, we believe we have both a responsibility and an obligation to provide teaching and learning programs that embeds the use of ICT across all facets of the curriculum. This prepares students for the fast changing technological world that they are growing up in.

Every classroom is fitted with interactive whiteboards and full wireless connectivity, with student computers in all classrooms. We also have a dedicated computer lab, and banks of computers in the library and lower primary blocks. Students have the opportunity to explore digital technologies using manipulative technology – such as our banks of robotic devices, wearable technologies and electronics kits.

BYOD iPad Program

Students from Years 3 to 6 are part of our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) iPad program, which allows for a deeper integration of technology across classrooms. More information for parents can be found in the Parent Portal (contact the front office for login information).

Kindergarten to Year 2 students use our school-based banks of iPads. Visit our Parent Portal to explore some of the apps that students are currently using in their learning activities.

Cyber Safety

Cyber Safety in conjunction with safe, ethical and responsible use of technology are integral parts of Sorrento’s ICT programs. We maintains rigorous and effective practices which aim to maximise the benefits of the Internet and ICT devices/equipment for student learning, while minimising and managing any risks.
