St Anthony’s School provides a 21st Century learning environment and we believe that technology should be integrated across all learning areas within every classroom. Each class has access to a bank of iPads, with a parent funded iPad program from Year Four onwards.
Digital Technology has been a major focus at the school for the last seven years and staff have had the opportunity to use the technology in their classroom, providing students with the guidance to get the most out of the devices to enhance their learning experience.
Students in these years attend school with an iPad to a minimum specification with the intent that the device lasts through Years Four, Five and Six at the School. St Anthony’s provides parents with ongoing support for the iPad program in the form of information evenings.
Students use their iPads over the course of the day across all learning areas at the discretion of the teacher depending on the learning activity. The use of iPads in the classroom is supported by a strong Digital Technologies program in the school that teaches students an understanding of cyber safety, the ability to find and use information, work in a collaborative learning environment, be producers of creative works and understand the social implications of Digital Technologies in society.
