Coorparoo State School is committed to the use of computers by students to enhance curriculum delivery and facilitate effective teaching and learning which will:
 
  • Support and improve student learning outcomes across the P-7 curriculum; and
  • Take place in a flexible, responsive and challenging learning environment.
 
Digital pedagogies and infrastructure are an ever changing facet of life at CSS and the emphasis on meeting and challenging the needs of all learners has recently been enhanced by the purchase of a suite of 20 iPads and 10 iPods and an integration of Symphony of Teaching and Learning across all KLA.
 
Students use their understandings of the relationships between technology and society to consider the roles people play in shaping products and processes. They use their imagination and creativity to investigate and identify needs, wants, design specifications and constraints. They understand the characteristics of a range of resources (information, materials and/or systems) and assess their suitability for a specific purpose and context. They compare and describe the characteristics of Australian and imported resources, investigating their impact on Australian technological processes and products. They investigate design challenges and consider the roles that people play in shaping technologies to meet changing needs and wants and preferred futures. They recognise the many different fields of technology and the people who work in occupations that use technology to design solutions for community needs.
 
Students use the essential processes of Ways of working to develop and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. They individually and collaboratively develop their ability to work technologically by generating, assessing and communicating design ideas and by selecting and using resources, tools and techniques, to design and make products to meet specifications. They analyse and respond to decisions about technology and its impact on people, their environments and their communities. They reflect on their learning and evaluate the suitability of products and processes and recommend improvements.
 
Students select and use tools and technologies, including information and communication technologies (ICTs), in purposeful ways. They make use of the potential that ICTs provide to inquire, create and communicate within technology contexts.
