preparing them to become digitally literate, flexible and socially aware of their future with the skills to contribute responsibly as members of a global eCommunity.
All classes at Southport State School are able to access the internet. Interactive Smart Boards are utilised in many of the classrooms. Smart tables are used in the junior classrooms.
Cybersafety and cyberbullying
Parents and carers can access information on cyberbullying and cybersafety or inappropriate online behaviour in a school context. The internet, mobile phones and instant messaging provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn, be creative and socialise online. They also provide opportunities for inappropriate behaviour, bullying and harassment to occur - causing pain and suffering to the targets of such behaviour.
The Learning Place
Southport State school uses The Learning Place as a valuable online learning environment for our students. The Learning Place is a valuable online learning environment for discovering, connecting, sharing and growing new ideas and knowledge. Many year levels at Southport State School use EdStudios as an aide to the delivery of the curriculum. EdStudios are a useful tool, as students are able to access information from home. Children can access The Learning Place directly from this website using their school username and password.
