eLearning at Pullenvale
What’s happening at Pullenvale?
Stated on the ACARA website, “In the Australian Curriculum, students develop ICT capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school. The nature and scope of ICT capability is not fixed, but is responsive to ongoing technological developments
Here at Pullenvale we use these Australian Curriculum ICT capabilities to guide our use of ICT in a cross curriculum focus. 
From Prep to year 3 our students have access to a lab of 30 computers allowing their teachers to book a few sessions a week to teach the ICT capabilities across the various curriculum areas.  These students also have access to iPads and laptops in class for small group work.
From Year 4 to 6 our students enter a one to one device class which is compulsory.  The option of BYOD (Bring your own device) or CYOD (Choose your own device) is available. 
The ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) scheme allows parents to use an existing family owned device or purchase a new device of their choice that meets the minimum requirements of the school.  The student will be required to have the appropriate software to meet the class requirements.  The ‘Choose Your Own Device’ (CYOD) scheme provides parents with a range of devices to choose from and elect to purchase.
