St Columban’s College is a school community striving to serve the needs of students in an authentic way. One of the College’s key learning and teaching principles is to utilize innovative pedagogical practices that effectively integrate technology. The Computer Program gives practical expression to this principle.
The key aim for integration of technology is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to become competent, discriminating and creative users of a range of technologies. The College believes that integration of technologies provides students’ interaction with their local and global communities. The integration of technology also facilitates the relational nature of learning, providing new opportunities for parents to engage with teachers, learning programs and their child’s progress.
The Computer Program is cutting edge and enables students to experience growth in many areas – self-confidence, organization, motivation to learn and learning in a range of modalities. This program will provide both students and staff with an extended range of tools to engage in creative and critical thinking tasks that extend their knowledge and promote collaborative and empathetic learning. Tasks set for students can be more complex as they have so much access to technology and information. Students are better equipped as global citizens and for the world of the future.
The College ICT Helpdesk will assist students with the use and maintenance of the laptops. The College will also aim to provide assistance to students, parents and guardians to maximise student learning with the Computer Program and is assessed on a case by case basis.
