DigiTech

At Scoresby Primary School, Digital Technologies (DigiTech) enables data to be digitally processed, stored and communicated. Our staff and students utilise DigiTech to access, process, manage and present information; model and control events; construct new understanding; and communicate with others.

Through the selection and application of appropriate equipment, techniques and procedures, students process data and information skilfully to create information products in forms that are meaningful for themselves and their audience. These products effectively demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the concepts, issues, relationships and processes that are the subject of the task.

Students are provided with tools and strategies to monitor learning patterns and problem solving strategies. This provides a sound foundation for transforming personal learning. They gain an understanding of Internet protocols and strategies for exchanging information, which enables them to share and challenge their own and other people’s ideas and solutions with a global audience.
