At BMPS Information and Communications Technology is taught in all classrooms. Currently students have access to a modern computer lab, class sets of notebooks and class sets of iPads, all connected to a modern networked system that services all areas of the school.
All classrooms have interactive whiteboards or interactive televisions that assist in providing a wide range of learning opportunities. An additional tilt interactive television is available for use throughout the school. The school gym has a rear projection 150” screen installed for use during assemblies and school functions.
Information and Communications Technology is taught as an interdisciplinary domain. It focuses on providing students with the tools needed to transform their learning and enrich their learning environment. The knowledge, skills and behaviours identified for ICT enable students to:
- develop new thinking and learning skills that produce creative and innovative insights
- develop more productive ways of working and solving problems individually and collaboratively
- create information products that demonstrate their understanding of concepts, issues, relationships and processes
- express themselves in contemporary and socially relevant ways
- communicate locally and globally to solve problems and share knowledge
- understand the implications of the use of ICT and their social and ethical responsibilities as users of ICT
- understand the need to be cyber safe.
