At Lambton, we believe in preparing our children for a technological future. We believe that technology, already merged with our ethos, pedagogy, vision and environments, will give our children a relevant and successful education which will enhance their learning opportunities. This will develop individuals and prepare them for the technological future in their everyday and working lives.
The school has a fully equipped, networked computer suite as well as computers in classrooms. There is also a mobile suite of tablets and a mobile suite of Chrome Books. These computers are all linked to the Internet. We also have a range of programming hardware including the following: Coding Criters, BeeBots, Lego Wedo robots, MV3 robots.
Children develop skills in using hardware and software to find, process and display information. They are taught the principles of computation; how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Pupils regularly use computers to reinforce or extend skills in other subjects.
The school operates an Internet Use Policy to ensure safety at all times.
