Smart initiative launched at Aspley school
A $100 MILLION education initiative that will give every school student access to cutting-edge smart mapping technology was launched at Aspley East State School recently.
Aspley East State School Head of Curriculum Jaime Perkins said his students would have a deeper understanding of technology Australians use daily without even realising.
“Many of us use mapping apps to get from A to B or find the nearest restaurant,” Mr Perkins said.
“With this technology, instead of simply viewing maps students will be learning how to add to them with new, information-rich layers and create their own content.”
Member for Aspley Tracy Davis said, “It’s a credit to the students of Aspley East State School that only months after having hands-on experience with this technology, they were asked to demonstrate the program at the launch.”
