Digital Learning Technologies (DLT)

Our DLT Vision: (draft):

Digital Learning at IPS will be irresistibly engaging for students and teachers across all learning areas and domains. Our students will become innovative and confident users of digital technologies, using technology to communicate, collaborate, curate and create, while fostering higher order thinking skills and real-life problem solving. (IPS Vision Committee)

To achieve the school’s vision of increased hardware, better access for teacher professional development and greater technical support requires substantial financial commitment. Government funding is insufficient to permit the realisation of the school’s vision. In 2017 the school will ask parents to pay a DLT co-contribution to enable the progression of the school’s vision. Anyone who has visited a classroom, attended the cyber safety evening and or the impressive innovation day can see that community support is vital to continue this great work that directly benefits every student.

Dear school community,

Congratulations to staff and students on what I heard was an exceptional International Day. A celebration of diversity and inclusion - thank you to all those behind the scenes who worked so hard to make International Day a fabulous event and to everyone who got into the spirit of the day.

Ms Jones and I spent the day, with other school leadership teams, looking at school data from student engagement and wellbeing to student achievement and best practice teaching and I am pleased to report that IPS is tracking very well indeed. This also supports many of the findings emerging from our school review process.

Dear IPS Community,

The School Review - The importance and power of feedback.

Feedback is a powerful influence on learning. As teachers and / or parents we know that the impact of our feedback can be positive or negative depending on how we approach it. Sometimes challenging, sometimes affirming, timely feedback is paramount to improvement. Of course there is high-level feedback and low level feedback. For example praise simply for performance does not in itself increase learning or lead to improvement however feedback that addresses questions like where am I going? How am I going? And where to next? This is more meaningful and far more likely to lead to progress and illicit positive outcomes.
