Information and Communications Technology is an integral part of every student's future. Marsden State School teachers develop students' ICT skills and knowledge by incorporating ICTs in a wide range of learning areas. Every classroom has access to a large number of computers and/or iPads. Teachers incorporate digital technologies into their teaching through the use of touchscreen technology, Smartboards and ICT based learning experiences.
Online Learning Programs
Literacy Planet and Mathletics are two online programs that students utilise throughout the school year. Both programs allow teachers to tailor the program to the needs of individual students, setting specific tasks to individual students as well as groups of students. Students are provided with a log on and password and can access these programs at home, complementing the work that is being completed at school. Each year the school holds a Mathletics competition, encouraging students to engage with the program and work towards mastery of concepts and skills. Students are recognised for their achievements through certificates and Vivo reward points.
One-to-one laptop classes are in place for Years 4-6. Each year, expressions of interest for placement in these classes are provided to all Year 3 parents in preparation for the following year. If you are interested in the one-to-one laptop program and your child is in year 3, please see the class teacher for more information. The levy to parents for this program varies from year to year and is additional to the usual Student Resource Scheme (SRS) cost.
