PALLARA STATE SCHOOL
Based on a belief in education evolution, rather than revolution, Pallara State School became the first state school in Queensland to offer a ‘bring your own device’ laptop program across Years 1 through 6. Computers are such a major part of the world and of student’s lives that it became obvious to staff that it was necessary to bring learning and computer use together. The students’ laptops are used to accelerate learning in all areas of the curriculum. Accordingly, this technology has tapped into student interests, and both teachers and parents are seeing improvements.
