Information and communications technology or ICT, an interdisciplinary domain, focuses on providing students with the tools to transform their learning and to enrich their learning environment. The knowledge, skills and behaviours identified for this domain enable students to:

  • develop new thinking and learning skills that produce creative and innovative insights
  • develop more productive ways of working and solving problems individually and collaboratively
  • create information products that demonstrate their understanding of concepts, issues, relationships and processes
  • express themselves in contemporary and socially relevant ways
  • communicate locally and globally to solve problems and to share knowledge
  • understand the implications of the use of ICT and their social and ethical responsibilities as users of ICT.

At Monash Special Developmental School we endeavour to include ICT methods into many of the lessons. This is due to the fact that we know most of our learners are familiar and confident with this medium of presentating the curriuculum. Varying technologes are used by students, including;

  • iPads
  • Interactive Televisions
  • Laptops
  • Desktop computers
  • Cameras
  • iPods and music players
  • Alternative Communication Devices
