Laptops for learning

Chifley Public School, NSW

Chifley Public School is a contemporary best practice educational environment. It has a diverse and vibrant student population of 160 students that come from over 15 different language backgrounds. A third of students identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.

Student success is significantly enhanced through access to learning technologies which support a 21st Century educational model emphasising creativity, critical thinking, communication skills and collaborative thinking.

The school recognises the dynamic and evolving nature of education. It is constantly reassessing the delivery of educational programmes to drive school improvement.

The school has introduced new differentiated online learning programmes including Maths Online, Google App for Education, Read Theory and Reading Eggs. These responsive educational programmes target individual learning needs and a flipped classroom through student centred activities and tutorials.

In 2018, stand-alone STEM classes will be introduced across Year 3 to Year 6. STEM targets Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in an integrated area of study. Children will be learning coding and involved in units of work that challenge them to apply creative, critical thinking skills in construction, robotics and even programming drones and spheres. Across infants STEM classes will continue to be embedded through the highly successful Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden programme.

We need your help to purchase a bank of laptops which will expand access and learning opportunities. A mobile power unit will allow the laptops to be easily wheeled into different K-6 classrooms and recharged as needed.

Students will use the laptops for access to the internet, online learning tools, research, communication with teachers, access to e-books and the presentation of their work.

Laptops were chosen over tablets because of their ability to run specialised software and their improved battery life for extended use in and outside the classroom.

The school’s expansive grounds house a kitchen garden with cooking and work benches. Nestled under the shade of gumtrees between the chicken coop and strawberry patch these outdoor learning spaces will be enriched by access to laptops for on the job research and reporting.
