The Technologies provide a framework for students to learn how to create innovative solutions that meet current and future needs. Students are encouraged to make decisions about the development and use of technologies, considering the impacts of change and how they may contribute to a sustainable future. We provide opportunities for students to be users, designers and producers of new technologies.
In Design and Technologies, students use design thinking and apply their knowledge to generate and produce design solutions.
At BMPS, Digital Technology is a part of every classroom. Currently students have access to a computer lab, class sets of notebooks and class sets of iPads, all connected to a modern networked system that services all areas of the school.
Focus is given to the safe and ethical use of technology, creativity and design thinking. The systems and equipment are also used to support the learning outcomes of students in our literacy and numeracy programs.
All classrooms have interactive televisions or screens that assist in providing a wide range of learning opportunities. An additional tilt interactive television is available for use throughout the school. The school gym has a rear projection 150” screen installed for use during assemblies and school functions.
