Learning technologies are an important part of the learning experience at St Andrew’s in all years. We aim for Learning technologies to be used authentically to enrich and enhance learning.
St Andrew’s Deputy Head (Learning and Teaching) Mr Richard Ford said: “Technology can be used to transform learning and increase engagement as learning tasks are significantly redesigned and new learning tasks are created that were previously inconceivable.”
Our Year 5 to Year 9 students use their own iPads and Year 10 to Year 12 students choose between an iPad or appropriate tablet or laptop. Access to computer labs is available as required and new desktop computers can be accessed in the Library and Senior Research Centre.
Kindergarten to Year 4 have class sets of iPads and laptops as well as new desktop computers. Gawura also has its own set of iPads and laptops.
St Andrew’s provides students with access to Office 365 for email, file storage and collaboration. This provides students with access to documents across all internet-enabled devices. Read more on Office365.
Schoology is our online Learning Management System. This enables students to communicate and discuss online with teachers and students as well as accessing resources, submitting work and receiving feedback. Schoology works across all internet-enabled devices. Read more on Schoology.
Mr Rolfe Kolbe, Director of Learning Technologies together with Elle Smith (Learning Coach, Technology) works closely with teachers to ensure that technology is being used to enhance learning and that students are confident and knowledgeable users of technology. Teachers continued to develop new approaches to learning with technologies and this is shared openly at our blog LearningShared.com.au
