Computers and technology

The ICT learning index adopted by Mitchelton State School and driven by the government target measure, reflects a whole school approach to modern learning in Queensland. It captures the energy, commitment and resources invested by government, schools, the community and industry in a framework that focuses on improving the life chances of all learners at our school.

Learning Response System

Picture of Learning Response SystemOur LRS's promote classroom collaboration by allowing students and teachers to immediately view responses and to discuss them during the lesson.

The LRS encourages students to engage, interact with and contribute to lessons, resulting in stimulating discussions and lively, insightful debates.

Mitchelton State School uses iPads across the school to support students in learning.

We have 8 iPads in the Library for reading e-books and educational apps and we have 10 iPads for our SEP program.









Chroma Key Blue Room

We have a Chroma Key blue room for use by students in class assignments.

This allows the student to have their photo or video imposed on another video or photo.

This has been used by classes for projects like a Romeo and Juliet movie acted out by students and imposed into realistic scenes.
