Digital Learning @ CQS
Clyde Quay School supports students to become digitally literate and fluent.
Digital literacy and digital fluency describe students' capability in using digital technologies to achieve desired learning outcomes.
Digital literacy – A digitally literate person knows how to use digital technologies and what to do with them.
Digital fluency – A digitally fluent person can decide when to use specific digital technologies to achieve their desired outcome. They can articulate why the tools they are using will provide their desired outcome.
A digitally fluent student:
knows where and how to find and access information quickly and accurately
can critique the relevance and accuracy of information being accessed
is an adept producer of digital content
can recognise and use the most effective methods of reaching their intended audience
understands and demonstrates how to use digital technologies responsibly including – digital security (self-protection), copyright

Devices at CQS
Currently CQS provides a range of devices to support students' learning in the classroom. Our Junior rooms have iPads, while the Senior classes have chromebooks. When appropriate these are shared around to ensure the students have the right tool for the job.
Year 5 and 6 students have begun BYOD (bring your own device), with Chromebooks being the device required.
Other digital learning tools
We are continuing to build up our set of resources to enhance and expand digital learning opportunities. Currently have BeeBots for coding in the junior and middle school, Bloxels game development for middle and seniors, and Edison robots and Micro-bits with STEM extension kits for the senior end of the school. These combined with a variety of online and iPad apps provide a wide range of digital learning activities.
