Our Vision:

ICT at The Woden School will be used as a tool for skill acquisition, exploration and development. It will create an interactive aspect to individual student curriculum and be guided by individual and classroom learning sequences and goals.

Element 1. Personalising and extending student learning Description : Personalising and extending student learning refers to the school's capacity to use ICT to extend and differentiate student learning opportunities, and to support students to manage and direct their learning. Current Assessment of our School capability in 2012 • ICT decisions to meet immediate needs across the school with reference to the curriculum framework that informs learning, teaching and assessment. • ICT to extend learning within curriculum areas, and to enable students to work independently and interact with others. • Provides opportunities for students to use ICT in most curriculum areas. • M onitors how ICT use within the school supports deep learning. Learning content is largely generated by staff. • Consults with the school community and others to determine how ICT can facilitate the development of personal learning pathways for students. At The Woden School, ICT is employed by students as a set of dynamic tools to access and engage with all curriculum areas.  Teachers at The Woden School teach ICT skills and common understandings embedded in all curriculum areas, rather than as a discrete subject.
