Every day, computers become a more important factor in today’s society. At Torquay College our Literacy & Numeracy Classroom Programs are complimented through the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT). Incorporating ICT into our programs has allowed us to engage and motivate our students whilst assisting them with the ICT skills needed to effectively communicate and learn in our ever changing world.
The Netbook Project is part of a global movement towards a 1:1 ratio of students to wireless-enabled computers. Research shows students are more motivated and engaged in learning when they have their own computer. Computer use has also been linked to better organisational skills, improved literacy and numeracy, better collaboration and analytical thinking
