Loreto College has implemented a comprehensive student laptop program where all students from Year 7 through to Year 12 have their own laptop to use both at school and at home.
An important part of the Loreto College Student Laptop program is the ongoing training and technical support that is provided for use of hardware and software, as well as responsible use as a good digital citizen.
The education of our students needs to reflect the dominant method of information flow used in society. We are in an ongoing digital information and educational revolution and teaching and learning needs to reflect this to ensure a relevant and contemporary education. We are living in a world where technology is getting faster and cheaper and is fundamentally changing the world in which we live and work. However, technology itself is a tool and the process of learning needs to be at the centre of any pedagogy. The incorporation of ICT into subject areas will be to enhance student learning, not replace types of student learning but will support the concept of anywhere, anytime learning. Students must also learn to utilise information and technology effectively and in a responsible and ethical manner in line with our College Mission statement.
