Information Technology, the ability to use computers and associated technologies, is an important part of the educative process at Port Phillip Specialist School. At all ages within the school, students work with appropriate levels of Information Technology that will support and enhance their learning.
All classrooms have several networked desktop computers in the room for student use. There is also a lab containing 10 networked desktops for group work or to combine classes. There is also a networked colour photocopier available to print work.
Our school has one of the largest school-based collections of educational software for staff and students to draw from when resourcing learning activities. Staff continually seek ways to enhance student engagement with learning by employing appropriate use of information technologies. The school is currently trialling the use of Interactive Whiteboards to assess their impact for special needs students.
