ICT - 21st Century Learning

Technology engages students who have different learning styles and allows students to work anywhere, anytime. Use of information and communication technology provides a more dynamic, engaged and creative learning experience, one which encourages independence of thought and expression.

Year 6 use an iPad for enhanced learning for the following reasons:

  • The iPad is the educational leader of tablet devices.
  • It is compact and light making it ultra-portable.
  • It will last the school day as it has a battery life of 10 hours.
  • The Apple App stores offers access to a vast quantity of quality applications and educational games not available on a laptop.

BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) is used in Years 7 to 12. This allows students to choose a device that they feel most comfortable with and the software tools they enjoy using. This creates a new learning environment where students have a choice in how they want to deliver a rich presentation, folio of work, or even an interactive class activity. These devices work hand in hand with our cloud based services and have a required battery life to last an exciting and engaging school day.

All enquiries regarding our integrated learning environment should be directed to Mrs Jen Gibbs, Head of Contemporary Pedagogy, Years 6 to 12 (jen.gibb@tlc.qld.edu.au ) , or Mrs Melissa O’shea, Head of Teaching and Learning Prep to Year 5 (Melissa.oshea@tlc.qld.edu.au ) or telephone (07) 5556 8200 during business hours.
