Use of Technology in Grade 3/4

Newlands Primary School uses the internet as a teaching and learning tool. We see the internet and mobile technology as valuable resources, but acknowledge they must be used responsibly.

Grade 3/4 have been completing many activities this week which are designed to prepare them for the full implementation of iPads into their classroom which is planned for next term.

We participated in the Safer Internet 2013 online presentation. This meant that we joined over 22 000 students across Victoria in this activity.

Parents and carers can access the information we learnt on the below website to learn more.

All students in Grades 3/4 have been given a Cyber-safety agreement. All aspects included in the document have been discussed in class and parents have been asked to also sign the document to show that they are aware of our school guidelines and that they have discussed them with their child.
