Information & Communication Technology
The digital programs at Gowrie Primary School are based within Google Workspace for Education. Workspace allows students to learn at school or from home 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.
Gowrie Primary School has been recognised as a Google for Education Reference School. This is as a result of the teachers use of Google for Education tools in the school.
