The world is connected, and today’s students are part of a digital generation. The skills needed to live and work in the future require students to be problem solvers, collaborators, critical thinkers and have the ability to adapt to change. The carefully selected devices in use at St Joseph's Regional College are tools for engaging students and promote opportunities to embrace new technologies that enhance learning and encourage creativity.
Students’ worlds are wired for action 24/7. They communicate, collaborate, create and learn on-demand; they use digital tools and thrive with digital learning. The use of digital devices, among other tools, are great motivators to engage students in a rich learning environment. At St Joseph's Regional College we provide digitally rich learning opportunities in which students, teachers and administrators have access to technology, when and where they need it.
Every day, our students are engaging in multiple modes of learning, independently as well as collaboratively. At St Joseph's Regional College we are fostering independent learning; giving students the opportunity to take responsibility for their learning journey. In addition, the importance of students being self-motivated learners can not be underestimated. Self-motivated learners have the ability to adapt to a changing educational and workplace environment.
St Agnes’ Parish Secondary Schools’ Leadership (SAPSS) Team and the Information Communication Technologies Review Committee work together annually to develop a sustainable, cost-effective and contemporary ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) solution for students in our Secondary Colleges.
