Since 2015, West Leederville Primary School has been a BYOD school. Students from Years 4 upwards bring their own iPad to school. This initiative has allowed learning to become more individualised, and students to engage regularly with technology for functional and educational purposes. Students involved in the program have shown increased independence with self-initiated learning, and often take their learning beyond the classroom.

Currently, two specialist teachers teach Design & Technologies and Digital Technologies, providing Years 1 – 6 students with the opportunity to generate and produce solutions, with the use of digital technologies and computational thinking, to generate and implement solutions to authentic needs.  The school also offers coding and robotics clubs from time-to-time.

West Leederville Primary School is part of the Dream Network: the Shenton Network digital technologies planning group. As part of the Network, teachers collaborate to create a district-wide approach to the Digital Technologies curriculum.
