ICT (Information and Communication Technology)
The use of ICT in all teaching and learning across curriculum areas is a strong focus at Ingle Farm Primary School. As one of the General Capabilities we recognise the importance of developing students’ digital skills through the use of ICT. There are five key elements that develop students’ knowledge and skills around ICT and its use, and the ability to transfer these across environments. These include: investigating, communicating, applying social and ethical protocols and practices, managing and operating and creating with ICTs. We aim to develop lifelong learners who are efficient, effective and responsible users of ICT.
