eLearning and Digital Technologies

At Canadian Lead PS, we understand that the need for up to date technology for learning is not optional. Technology now forms a vital part of a high quality, fully rounded education in the 21st century. Young people are now using mobile technology to assist them in life and learning. Students must be able to access digital information, tools and resources from anywhere, any time and in ways that lead to a deeper engagement and understanding.

We are well resourced at Canadian Lead PS with a range of iPads, desktop PCs, Apple TVs, Smart TVs and Interactive Smartboards. These are used in various formats and assist in a well rounded learning of technology which is integration throughout the curriculum.

In the senior unit, we have a very successful 1:1 BYOD iPad program. For more information please see our BYOD iPad Program page.

Our eLearning Vision

At Canadian Lead Primary School, we believe in embedding technology into all curriculum areas with an integrated approach and that technology needs to be purposeful for the students and tailored to their needs, interests and abilities. We strive to engage and empower students to embrace the skills they need to become critical, adaptive and responsible citizens for our multi-cultural community and a world of ever changing technologies.

eSmart & Cyber Safety

At Canadian Lead PS we believe smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology & Cybersafety is highly important and that our students must be equipped with the strategies to operate successfully in a digital world. The Department provides advice on Cybersafety and educating young people to be safe and responsible users of digital technologies and social media tools. In 2016 we are working towards becoming a fully sustainable eSmart school.

Our students learn to be smart, safe and responsible online by participating in high quality cyber safety learning through programs such as Budd:e, Digital Licence and the annual National eSmart Week.

Maker Space

Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works too. Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer; it strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking, and supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology. For these reasons, we created Maker Space program for our students to explore and investigate their STEM skills during lunch play.
