Technology plays an important role in everyday life and this is no different at Cedars. With a variety of devices and tools available from Prep to Year 12, our students are exposed to technology, given skills to use it effectively, and taught to behave ethically and responsibly online.
Our Junior School students have access to 1:1 Chromebook computers which are used regularly by all classes. Each room is fully equipped with projection capabilities, document camera, iPad, and a range of Apps and websites that assist in making teacher instruction dynamic and engaging. Students also take every opportunity to use all of these tools as they learn each day.
Middle School is well equipped with contemporary educational technologies to engage and excite the learner. Students have projection capabilities in every classroom. At the beginning of their High School journey, Year 7 have Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program that allows parents to have choice and student and teachers to meet the increasing demands of the Australian Curriculum as it continues to be established across all subject areas. Teaching programs have been purposefully written to incorporate this technology, ensuring the establishment of effective research and IT skills.
Our Senior College students continue with a well-established and supported Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment. There are school owned laptops available to borrow and the classroom, playground and study facilities display an authentic use of technology as students have the flexibility to use technological devices as needed or required.
Our graduates leave our College with a vast range of IT skills developed over their time from Prep to Year 12 either through specific courses with our Director of ICT or Technology Staff or through using a variety of technology tools to assist them in their learning.
