Curriculum Report – Technology

Focus

  • Technology is part of the Inquiry curriculum Team.
  • Classes continue with the use of projectors, cameras, iPads, Apple TV’s and TV screens and general use of computer
  • The school wide programmes for the year have continued on the same topics of ‘Our School, Our Town, Our Country, Our World”. Within this umbrella the technology programme has a limited scope. In the seniors the focus for term 4 is Circus comes to town and Toys around the World. Within these themes there is a technology focus.

Programme

  • The Inquiry team have found that there is a need for a planner to show coverage of curriculum areas and strands between year levels, and to ensure students are leaving our school having exposure to a range of these.  To bring this curriculum area back into the arena, the inquiry team have created a coverage planner which helps to make teachers aware of the areas and strands that can be covered or focused on.
Assessment Procedures
  • In our final reports to parents there is space for teachers to comment on what technology students have been doing. There is no formal assessment requirements.

Looking Ahead

  • We hope to use the planner to gain an understanding of what has been covered and where to next to ensure coverage.
