Digital Learning

The 21st Century is an increasingly complex and ever changing period of time. Students are already active participants in an increasingly online digital world and virtual environments.

As technology improves and new discoveries are made, our students will have unprecedented access to information. They will be judged by how they utilize their knowledge, think critically and creatively, and work collaboratively to solve problems.

PLD Use in the Classroom

The College has a clear, coherent and well researched plan about how we use ICT in teaching and learning to better equip students to make a positive difference in this ever changing world. This eLearning Plan identifies a number of Key Future Directions for the College that cover the following areas: Catholic Values, Personal Learning Devices on a 1:1 Model, Infrastructure and Resources, Ethical, Safe and effective use of technology, Effective Leadership of eLearning, Professional Learning, Learning Resources, Information and Learning Management Systems and Learning Places and Spaces.

The Personal Learning Devices (with keyboard and stylus) and Windows have been rolled out to all students.

Every classroom in the College is equipped with an overhead data projector and laptop connection allowing for easier integration in the classroom. Interactive white boards or interactive touch screens are in all Junior School classrooms, allowing for the technology to be a day to day part of student learning.

The College has a Portal for parents and students providing College information including classwork and homework details. An internal intranet for both Students and Staff, provides useful links and resources in the College. The Senior and Junior Libraries also have websites giving useful research information and access to resources such as encyclopedias, information databases and video library.
