Computer and science labs

Woodridge State School is well equipped with computers and related equipment. We have the Education Queensland Managed Operating Environment (MOE) running on our school network. Students from prep through to year 6 have their own username and password to access the school network, the internet and virtual classrooms.

All classes at Woodridge State School have access to information and communication technologies either through our 4 computer labs (in I Block, F Block and in the Resource Centre) or in their own classrooms. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and data projector to improve student digital learning opportunities.

ICT supports and enhances what students learn, how they learn, and when and where their learning takes place. A number of teachers have set up virtual classrooms in the Learning Place to enable students to access schoolwork and homework 'anywhere, anytime'.

We have several banks of digital tools that teachers and students are using to personalise learning eg, digital cameras, flip cameras, iPads, easy-speak microphones and laptop computers.

Cyber safety tips for kids

Here are some Safety Tips to help kids online. Talk about these tips with your family. You might have one or two of your own to add!

  • Don't give out information about yourself like your last name, your phone number, where you live, or where you go to school - without asking your parents first.

  • Never e-mail a picture of yourself to strangers.

  • If somebody says something to you, sends you something, or you see something that makes you uncomfortable, don't look around or explore; get your parents instead - they know what to do.

  • Making plans to meet your Internet buddies in real life is usually a really bad idea - how people are in real life can be very different from how they are online. If you decide to do it anyway, have your Mum or Dad help make the plans and go with you.

  • Don't open up e-mails, files, or Web pages that you get from people you don't really know or trust.

  • Don't ever give out your password, except to responsible adults in your family. 

  • Always follow your family's rules for the Internet - they're there to make sure you have fun and stay safe online.

  • Don't ever do anything that could cost your family money unless your parents are there to help you do it.​​​​​​
