Technology

Edmodo

Edmodo provides a safe and easy way for our students to connect and collaborate, share content, and access homework, grades and school notices in a secure environment which can only be accessed by students enrolled at Quakers Hill. Your child's teacher, Mrs Droscher and Mr Lo Campo are also members of each and every class utilising Edmodo. Children can only be part of the Edmodo once they have received the class code from their teacher. Our goal in using Edmodo is to support teachers, students and parents harness the power of social media to customise the classroom for each and every learner.

Computer labs

Quakers Hill has three state of the art computer labs to support student learning providing a 1:1 ratio. Our students are able to utilise the computer labs to carry out whole class activities or to complete assessment tasks, projects and individual contracts.

Apple Televisions

Apple Televisions (TVs) allow our teachers to stream educational programs straight onto the interactive whiteboards and through air play, teachers are be able to project content from IPADS, IPODS and IPHONES directly onto the interactive whiteboard/or TV. Teachers are also be able to take control of a PC and be able to actively move around the classroom without having to be at the front of a computer or in front of the interactive whiteboard. Lessons will become even more interactive.

Digital recording

Our students have access to a range of digital recording devices. Bloggies, digital cameras, video recorders, IPODS are used by students from Kindergarten to Year 6 for recording all types of learning activities. Our students have used the devices to film short movies (through IMOVIE) , to record debates and to take pictures of learning sequences. Our students relish in opportunities to showcase their skills and talents in this area.

Wireless network

Quakers Hill Public School is a wireless hotspot. Wireless routers are located throughout the school and in each classroom. Allowing our students to be engaged in their learning in the classrooms or when they are out and about by connecting in to the school's network.
