Bentleigh West primary students


Students have access to laptops and iPads within their classrooms. Digital cameras are available for use in each classroom and each Learning Space has access to an interactive whiteboard or plasma screen. These are mainly used by the teachers and some student leaders.

Students are taught how to be responsible using ICT and BWPS is an e-Smart school. Screen time is not encouraged at BWPS and we teach how important it is to manage screen time and promote tasks such as reading, socialising and play in spare time.

Students are taught how to research using the internet and evaluate sources. Critical literacy skills are important and older students spend time analysing information for accuracy and reliability. Basic word, excel and document management skills are also taught to students as they progress through the school.

​ICT is used as a support for students with particular learning needs. Particular apps and programs can be very helpful. Our learning support team can give you more information about this.
