Technology in classrooms

Hand tapping on laptop keyboardAt Boonah State School, our e-Learning vision ensures technology is a tool used to enhance teaching and learning. Technology in education facilitates the creation and sharing of knowledge, it is more than just a method of retrieving information. IT devices are a powerful means of differentiating and personalising a student's education. Boonah State School is committed to moving students and staff forward in a contemporary learning environment.

Our device programs respond to our ever-changing, global working environment and gives our students the tools and know how to allow them to succeed. Today's students are born into a world that has digital technology as a standard, not a luxury.

As a school, we aim to deliver learning anywhere and anytime, and with Wi-Fi access points installed in every learning space, together with innovative teaching strategies, we believe we have the perfect solution. We need to challenge students to engage and learn in ways that they will use in the workforce and as a productive and responsible digital citizen.
