At Berwick Lodge Primary School, we use many forms of digital technology to help our students learn. We use Scratch and Scratch Jr (iPad), LEGO WeDo/Mindstorm kits and Arduino boards for our robotics and coding program. We also have a 3D printer to use, too.
In Multimedia, we use iMovie and our green screen studio to create films! We also have our very own radio show on 97.7FM Casey Radio at http://www.3ser.org.au/. The show is produced in our very own radio studio and is broadcast on a Wednesday afternoon at 2:oopm to 3:oopm.
Berwick Lodge Primary School also has it’s own weekly television show called ‘LODGERS’. To view the episodes visit: http://learningwithdigitaltechnology.global2.vic.edu.au/lodgers-berwick-lodge-tv/
