21st Century Skills + ICT

"To cope with the demands of the 21st century, people need to know more than core subjects. They need to know how to use their knowledge and skills by thinking critically, applying knowledge to new situations, analyzing information, comprehending new ideas, communicating, collaborating, solving problems, making decisions."
– Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Digital education in Australia

In December 2008 Australia's education ministers signed "The Melbourne Declaration" that set the educational goals for young Australians.
It said in part: "Rapid and continuing advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) are changing the way people share, use and process information and technology. In this digital age, young people need to be highly skilled in the use of ICT."

At Kincumber Public School, incorporating these 21st Century Skills into our curriculum and using digital technologies effectively and appropriately is a school priority. Please use the menu to the left for information about our BYOD program, Google Classroom and other initiatives.

For more information please contact Mr David Logue, leader of the school technology team.
