ICT & iPad eLearning program

Family Funded Program

Sandringham College offers students a wide range of learning opportunities through the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools. Students have access to Notebooks, Netbooks and Macbooks, as well as desktop computers. These devices are currently shared around the college, providing access in all teaching and learning domains.

Currently we are running an integrated iPad elearning program across the Year 7, 8 and 9 levels. In 2016 all year levels on the junior campus will access their learning texts and complete school work with their iPads. Through their web based subscription to LearningField students have access to thousands of text books and reference materials.

 

Some Year 9, 10 and 11 classes have started to explore the use of ePortfolios to record and reflect on their work, and are using blogs and wikis to showcase this. Students at staff are regularly posting on the college blog, sharing our experiences with the world.

Year 9 Horizon students have been bitten by the Geocaching bug, playing a high tech version of hide and seek. They use multi-million dollar satellites linked to their smart phones or GPS devices to find hidden treasures. They have worked with the historical society to develop their own caches, which are hugely successful in the caching community.

Many classes have set up their own blogs and wikis to record and reflect as a class on the learning they do in, Music, Textiles, Drama, Media, VCAL, VET to name a few. Maths uses Classpad and interactive whiteboards to create exciting learning experiences for our senior maths students.
