ICT Level 2 ~ ( Year 1 & 2 students )
In Level Two, ICT is integrated into the curriculum in a variety of ways. Students undertake ICT in all levels of the curriculum including Literacy, Numeracy and ICT sessions. These sessions are usually introduced with an Interactive Whiteboard which provide for the needs of all different learning styles within a classroom.
The students are involved in a weekly ICT lab session where they are coached in a variety of ongoing skills, including creating and editing pieces of work, saving and loading documents and locating websites on the intranet and internet. During these sessions the students have explored programs like Microsoft Word, Comic Life and KidPix.
These programs are often used within the Literacy Block, usually used to show the students understanding of a text they have read. The students use digital cameras and take photos or search for pictures that can support them to retell the story. The students also use online resources which engage them in interactive stories, reading comprehension games and writing activities.
In Numeracy, students use resources like Matheletics and Rainforest Maths to develop the concept being taught. These programs engage the student as they cater for a wide range of levels depending on the students needs.
