 Laptop Program

students_laptops.jpgContemporary learning environments offer flexibility and opportunities for collaboration, independence and connectivity toglobal resources. This sort of ‘anytime, anywhere’ learning is supported by access to portable technologies (eg laptops).

The Xavier Catholic College approach is developed out of the following emerging issues related to the National Secondary School Computer Fund (NSSCF) program and implications for contemporary learning and teaching in all schools in Brisbane Catholic Education.

Learning and Teaching:

  • Learners and teachers create contemporary learning environments and quality learning outcomes as they shape and enrich their own and others’ worlds.
  • Contemporary learning is personalised and provides anytime, anywhere access for students to portable technologies.
  • Teachers’ access to the Australian Curriculumand supporting professional resources will be delivered online.
  • Brisbane Catholic Education is establishing access to teacher and student online learning and teaching environments and content.

This is underpinned by the following assumptions:

  • The world of students within and beyond the school is connected by the use of contemporary information processing, communication and collaboration tools.
  • Teachers engage in continuous learning to enhance their professional practice and the practices of their students.
  • School and organisation leaders create the conditions that enable the vision to be realised.
  • Parents are empowered to become actively involved in their child’s education by accessing online communication, learning, reporting and monitoring systems.
  • Planning and resourcing is future focused and flexibly delivered within the learning context of the school.
  • Accountability and improvement are reviewed through the School Cyclical Review process in accordance with the BCE Strategic Renewal Framework.

New laptops are issued to students in Year 9 each year. These devices are available to students to use 24x7 while they are students of the College.
