Learning with Technology: A Fundamental Skill

The buzz around using technology in the classroom has grown in recent years! As a result, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is now playing a key role in primary and high school curriculum across Victoria.

Tech Skills

Keeping up with the increasing demand for these skills, our Greenwood Notting Hill centre in Melbourne has adapted its programs to include this in your child’s day-to-day learning.  Through this, the children can build vital skills to help them transition to the school environment.

Our Greenwood Notting Hill centre has a variety of technological resources for your child to access at any age. The little buzzing Bee-Bots and Blue-Bots are not just toys! In fact, these are educational tools which can be used in a fun way for toddler to kindergarten age children.  Using these, they can learn about sequencing, problem-solving, numeracy and literacy. These skills can apply to math, art and digital technology subjects.

Taking it to another level, pre-kinder and kindergarten children can access our Interactive White Board and Interactive Learning Touch Table!

These whiteboards have educational programs which focus on mathematics, spelling games, pattern recognition and so on. Through this, children can build their literacy and numeracy skills, which all ties in with our centre’s G-Curriculum.

Here, you can see some of our kindergarten children engaging with this technology in the video below.  Along with our Early Childhood Teacher James, the children from Greenwood Scoresby practice a shape and colour recognition exercise.

Using the Interactive White Boards in this format means children can form good habits with technology whilst learning. It’s a great opportunity for them to engage with each other, receive assistance from their peers, be patient, and most importantly, have fun!
