Elstow-Waihou School is committed to delivering a child-centred, future focussed education. Our Year 5-8 students use chromebooks to do much of their learning, this coupled with school’s leased desktops and laptops means that our students have a one-to-one digital learning experience. A suite of Google apps ensure that children are connected, confident and collaborative learners.
Our Board have made a bulk purchase of chromebooks and by doing so are in a position to pass the savings onto our community. Parents can purchase a chromebook for their child for a fantastic package deal at an affordable price. We have full purchase or rent to own (one year and two year options). Contact us to see how you can support your child’s e-learning experience at Elstow-Waihou.
We have committed significant funds in the development of digital learning for our youngest learners with ipads in the junior rooms (NE – Year 4). Our children have the opportunity to experience the best teaching practice in supportive class environments with ample digital resources.
Our teachers believe that cyber safety is a fundamental component of digital learning. Children learn first, how to keep themselves and their peer’s safe on the Internet. The school has also invested in a device monitoring service to ensure that students are ‘doing the right thing, in the right place, at the right time.’ Teachers are supported with their professional development with IT facilitators.
Teachers share and collaborate learning with colleagues. Teachers here not only develop their personal teaching practice but also model to students that we are all ‘life-long learners’.
