The primary benefit of e-learning (learning facilitated through the use of digital technologies) is to give students the skills, strategies and experiences to achieve success in the modern digital world.


“Digital devices have the potential to expand and enhance interaction in the classroom, enable more real-world activities, improve learning environments and engage students in new and exciting ways. Opportunities for collaboration and problem-solving are expanded beyond the classroom in an online environment” (Ministry of Education).


The Board of Trustees and the PTA significantly invests in ICT technology. As a school, we aim to provide students with exposure and access to a range of different types of devices throughout their years at school. We aim to provide them with flexible skills that can be adapted to suit a wide range of applications preparing them for success at High School and beyond.

 

The school has an Internet Safety Policy, which is reviewed regularly in order to maintain the safety of students online. Digital citizenship and cyber safety is interwoven throughout the school curriculum beginning right from Year 1.

 

School Blogs

Having an authentic audience to share and engage with, is a great motivator for students to keep striving to do their very best. Our school blogs aim to provide this for our students.

 

St Heliers School is very fortunate to enjoy close ties with our parent community. Teachers and parents keeping in regular contact helps us to create the environment in which we can provide the very best educational experiences for the students. We understand that not all family members can make it to school as often as they would like. As such, the blogs provide a safe online place for students and teachers to share the exciting things that are going on at school.

 

Most syndicates have a team blog and use them in a variety of ways. These can include, sharing classroom learning, allowing students to share their completed work, sharing homework and providing links to information.

 

Please share the relevant blog with your extended family members.
