2020 Netbook Information
ICT Programs

 

Every day, digital technologies become a more important factor in today’s society. At Torquay College our Literacy & Numeracy Classroom Programs are complemented 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.

 

Resources

 

Our students use a range of digital programs to foster learning and creativity as well as developing their skills in ICT. At Torquay College, our students have access to desktop computers in each classroom. This is integrated into our classroom programs. Students and teachers have access to a number of other ICT resources such as flip cameras, interactive whiteboards, STEM related activities and much more.

 

NetBooks

 

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.

iPads

Students in Foundation to Year Three have access to iPads that are connected to the internet to foster learning and creativity as well as developing their skills in ICT. Students work with the iPads during literacy, numeracy and integrated units of work.

Torquay College acknowledges the Wadawurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, learn and play and recognise the resilience, strength and pride of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We acknowledge the connection to land, waters and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging throughout Australia.
