Technology

Students are growing up in a time of unprecedented economic, social and technological change. A new generation of learners is emerging along with exciting opportunities for innovative teaching and learning. At St Catherine’s we are passionate about remaining at the forefront of educational technology.

Leading the way

 

St Catherine’s has led the way among Australian schools with our ICT for Learning program with its focus on global citizenship, cutting edge technology and innovative teaching. We see technology as a powerful tool for learning that inspires collaboration and contributes to the academic challenge for each student.

The ICT for Learning program and one-to-one learning at the School is part of our commitment to providing technology as a key resource in achieving our educational goals.

All St Catherine’s students in Years 5–12 use their own tablet computers. Years 3 and 4 have tablets for classroom use and Stage One teachers use educational apps on iPads to enhance teaching and learning in the Junior School.

ICT for learning

 

Collaboration through technology

At all times, girls have access to the information they need and the tools to process that information efficiently.

Learning may be tailored to meet individual needs and students can also collaborate effectively with others.

Pushing boundaries

The ICT for Learning program pushes the boundaries of teaching and learning and prepares the girls for the global workplace of the future.

Mr Alan November, a US based world leader in education technology, has worked with us to help develop the program based on his Digital Learning Farm ​model​. One of his initiatives is 'Flipping the classroom'.  This is where teachers use classroom time more effectively by providing initial instruction of new concepts in video format for students to watch before the lesson begins.
