As educators it is imperative that we keep abreast of educational research and ensure that we carefully assess and apply relevant current teaching practices at the College. One area which has been at the forefront of much research and discussion in education is technology. In particular, the focus has been on how technology can benefit student learning and increase educational outcomes. The established College Technology program aims to develop the 21st Century learning skills of our students by; enhancing their collaborative and creative problem solving skills, improving their ability to access information and to critically assess the quality of that information as well as to encourage students to develop practical uses for the knowledge available to them. As such, all students in the Senior School are expected to bring a device with them to the College as a part of the normal learning routine. Year Seven to Eight use iPad's and Year Nine to Twelve may use other technology as outlined in the booklet below.
For information on the Senior School Technology Program and minimum technology requirements for Year Seven to Year Twelve, please read this booklet.
The College also has a Parent Purchase Portal through which parents can purchase College recommended notebooks and accessories. Please note, this is a guide only which may be helpful for parents who do not have time to get to the shops to purchase a laptop. Notebooks listed in the portal are not manditory and minimum requirements for technology are listed in the above booklet which can be used to purchase a variety of devices.
