Information & Communication Technology
The digital programs at Gowrie Primary School are based on the Google for Education suite of apps (G-Suite). These apps allow students to complete much of their learning from home or school on a range of connected devices.
Gowrie students have access to Chromebooks at all year levels in varying capacity. K-2 classes have access to class sets of Chromebooks for use in Literacy and Numeracy lessons, as well as learning digital literacy skills in targeted lessons. 3-6 students have 1:1 access to a Chromebook for accessing their individual programs.
Every classroom at Gowrie has an interactive whiteboard (IWB) or large screen digital display for teachers to deliver engaging and interactive lesson content. Most other learning spaces also have digital displays for breakout groups and unit meetings or assemblies.
Cybersafety is taught to all students through a range of different programs including the Australian Federal Police Cybersafe, Kenny Koala and Kids Helpline. Parents looking for eSafety information can go to the website of the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.
