Information Technology

Caroline Chisholm School (CCS) is committed to providing a technology rich environment for our students. Our community believes the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is fundamental in assisting teaching and learning in all areas of the school curriculum. We believe our students should have the tools they need to learn anywhere, with access to everything they need when they need it.

The rate of change in technology and in society is so rapid that to prepare young people to live, work and be successful in the 21st century, they will need the ability to think both creatively and critically, problem-solve and work collaboratively.”

Year 6 and 7 Students in 2016

In 2015, we conducted many investigations into BYOD and the use of Google Apps. We also had many conversations with our feeder primary schools and colleges. Our findings were that they were on a very similar journey and direction. The end result will be that your child will have a more streamlined approach to technology, with the view to increase engagement, enhance learning and to prepare them for their roles in the digital world in which we live.

In 2016 we started the BYOD program with Years 6 and 7.

In 2017 students in Years 6, 7 and 8 are requested to bring a Chromebook to school every day. This is the continuation of a very exciting journey full of innovation, interaction and learning possibilities.
