Information Communication Technology (ICT)
“I can make an electrical circuit, and speech-to-text helps me write the word ‘electricity’ in my research report. Cool.”
At Summit Point, ICT is not an escape... it opens doors and allows kids to demonstrate their knowledge in ways that were unimaginable in the past. In fact, our students handled the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions super well...the screen meetings, the online instructions, and the uploading of their work. See remote learning in a COVID-19 world.
Students learn to navigate their way around Google Classroom and a wide range of cutting-edge software. They actively use their Chromebooks to access learning materials and resources including:
- Epic Books
- Sunshine Online
- Matific Maths
- Google Docs and Slides
- Speech-to-text tool to assist with writing and brainstorming.
Students also work collaboratively on shared docs and turn in their homework online.
"We were desperate to help our son’s self-esteem and confidence. Enrolling him at Summit Point restored his belief in himself."
"Being encouraged to demonstrate his knowledge using educational technology has helped remove barriers to my child’s learning and made him less anxious about tests and assessment."
"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
