In every class at Miramar Central School, there is 1 digital device for every 2 students in the class (1:2). We have chromebooks in classes from Y2-Y6 and iPads for NE - Year 1. The students learn important skills from username/password security, research and publishing work, making movies, taking photos for evidence of their work, independent practice for literacy and numeracy (e.g. mathletics, reading eggs, sunshine books, phonics etc).
Each child and staff member are required to sign a cybersafety form to ensure that everyone has a sound understanding of safe cyber practices in the school. We have a cyber-safety unit that is led by the classroom teacher for each child to complete. For more information regarding cyber-safety, please check out www.netsafe.org.nz
Here is a slideshow done by the Techie Club to educate the school about being a good digital citizen.
The school has a 'Techie Club' which meets weekly for students to come together and learn new skills when using devices e.g. programming, videos, slideshows etc.
