Since students first walked through our gates in 2008 we have immersed our students in digitally rich learning environments. As our school grows and the world changes we too are changing the manner in which we encourage our students to interact with the school, local and greater community. Our school uses Apple technology to allow our students to utilise all the 'Cs' of technology integration in a school setting-Creation, Consumption, Communication, Collaboration and Critical thinking.
At Coomera Springs State School our families are provided the opportunity to opt into a 1:1 Student iPad program. The program is a Year 1 to Year 6 commitment funded by families that take place from Year 1 to Year 6 (parents have the ability to opt in at other points if new to the school or circumstances change).
To be part of the program parents purchase a specific device through a parent portal for student to use in the classroom and at home. The device is managed in a multi-faceted way with the school being able to push settings and applications to the student device as well as parents being able to do the same from home via iTunes. The program provides students access to tailored learning episodes which utilise the iOS platform yet remains flexible enough to also have students engaging in more traditional learning.
