7-12 ICT Program

7-12 ICT Program

Lorne P-12 College has a 1:1 Technology Program for students from Year 4 to VCE. This program has been developed to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. At our College we believe that today’s students think, connect and communicate differently to students who were at school even a few years ago. We are aware that our students live in a world where information can be accessed and shared quickly over the Internet, where they can communicate with peers and create new knowledge, and collaborate with learners and experts all over the world. As a college we are keen to inspire and engage this new generation of learner with today’s tools and assist them in reaching their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.

We have worked tirelessly to ensure that even with the integration of technology to support learning, we never lose focus of the number one indicator that promotes student learning, that being, good teaching.

Today’s students will know nothing less than the technology that is always available to them, therefore we need to ensure that we are constantly delivering the best teaching practices to our students.

We are fully aware that the students we are now teaching are:

  • More self-directed
  • Better equipped to capture information
  • More reliant on feedback from peers
  • More inclined to collaborate
  • More orientated to being their own ‘modes of production’

With students having 1:1 access to their own device, they can utilising their technology to support the above.
