Voice of schools - Interactive video


To achieve better student outcomes and understand the diverse nature of digital usage, we held a series of interviews and workshops with schools across the state. 

From these consultations, handbooks have been developed, outlining the key digital priorities of the school types involved.

The video is interactive. Click on the pin to read more about each school's priorities.


  

A strategy co-designed with schools


The Schools Digital Strategy is built on the principles of co-design. Extensive interviews have been conducted with principals, teachers and school administrative staff across the state to understand how they see technology contributing to their roles in improving student outcomes.

  
Teachers


Teachers speak about how the SDS will give them the tools, resources and skills they need to "create life-long learners". And the importance of listening to schools and providing them with the technology that's the "best fit for them".

School leaders


Principals speak about the need for having technology that is “reliable, cost-effective, and enhances teaching and learning" and how the SDS will assist in their school's planning and give them "more time to be working with students and teachers".

Voice of Schools handbooks


This is a selection of the handbooks developed with school leaders around the state. Over time, these local planning tools will be developed into a set of digital innovation models.

Each model will match the needs of schools of a particular type, size, location and demographics, with proven strategies packaged for schools to adopt and adapt.
