It is essential that students be prepared to thrive in a constantly evolving technological landscape where they utilise collaboration, communication, creativity, innovation and critical thinking skills. The use of technology in Catholic schools across the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle provides students with these opportunities as they leverage technology to take an active role in their learning.
Our schools integrate technology throughout the curriculum and through the general capabilities strands of the curriculum. Innovative and varied means of learning are encouraged which enrich the curriculum and provide students with authentic learning opportunities that prepare them for the future. Learning technologies are utilised in a hands-on approach that enables students to explore and develop ICT capabilities in order to become effective and critical users of information and communication technologies, becoming confident developers of digital solutions.
Students utilise digital innovation and learning tools to engage in multiple modes of learning experiences and ways of demonstrating what they have learned, thereby enhancing student’s understanding and engagement.
