Welcome to TiqBiz at GWPS

 

We’re pleased to inform you that we have just launched a school app titled “TiqBiz” which we will use to communicate with you electronically. The benefits of TiqBiz for our school community are:

 

Instant messages can be pushed out to your smartphone or tablet as a “push notification”

 

Push Notifications will contain reminders and timely information about events happening around our school

 

You will be able to add these school based events to your personal calendar

 

You can access school newsletters, canteen price lists and more via your smartphone

 

You can notify the school if your child is absent by sending a message from your smartphone

 

You will be kept-up-to-date with information regardless of where you are.

 

The TiqBiz app is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android Phone, Android Tablet and Windows phone devices. If you don’t have a mobile device, there is also an app available for the computer, both on Mac and PC. 

 

We kindly ask that you download Tiqbiz to one of your devices, register for a free account and follow the steps on the hyperlinked document to link to our school.  Downloading and setting up Tiqbiz - Instructions

Digital Excellence

Children in todays world are surrounded by technology and use it in every day life, however our aim is for children to create wonderful projects and work using technology.


Glen Waverley Primary School has undertaken this revolutionary Information Technology Program within our school with the aim of creating children that are "Digital Experts" .

 
Digital Excellence is a program that rewards children for learning new skills both at home and in the classroom. They are awarded with "badges" when they have shown their teacher they are "Digital Experts" in a field, such as Word Processing, Robotics or in Movie Making. Children are encouraged to use IT when ever they can within school, because with IT there is no limit to what they create.
 
Digital Excellence has been launch at only 120 schools in Victoria, so we feel very privileged that Dr John Ingram has allowed us to use this program. We feel that Digital Excellence is one of the best programs to encourage students to use IT more in the classroom.
