High quality teaching is central to student achievement. At Ormiston, teaching staff use the school’s curriculum framework (PDF, 1.1 MB) and the Department’s digital pedagogy resources to help guide their teaching practise. Our school actively seeks ways to incorporate the use of technologies to enhance student learning by providing all students full access to Mathletics, Sunshine Online reading program and Reading Eggs. Classroom learning opportunities are also supported through the use of computers in all of the classrooms.
A Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) iPad program operates at Ormiston State School in Years 5 & 6. The iPad program allows teachers and students to utilise the iPad as a tool to enhance learning. Students still engage in and have a strong focus on writing – the iPad is simply used as a tool to enhance the already wonderful teaching and learning taking place.
