Since 2010 St Monica's College has provided a device for all students in
Years 7-12. Our goal is to provide students with those tools which enable them
to be confident users of technology so that they will improve their learning
outcomes: learning outcomes first and devices second.
Students receive laptops for their own personal use at school and at home
firstly upon entry in Year 7 and again at the commencement of Year 10 to ensure
they have reliable devices for the full 6 years of their secondary schooling.
All laptops have access to a high speed Cisco wireless network, which enables
students and teachers to access network and internet resources from anywhere on
All teaching staff have been provided with a Notebook computer for use in
integrating Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in the curriculum. All
class rooms have data projectors installed so staff can provide delivery of
teaching and learning using digital resources. A dedicated E-Learning department
is available to staff and students for training in the use of ICT resources and
assistance in the development of digital resources. This means that St Monica’s
College has a strong platform for the implementation of ICON – the Integrated
Catholic Online Network. And finally, St Monica’s College remains committed to
the use of cloud technologies to provide for an anywhere, anytime access to
learning resources through the use of learning management systems such as Google
Classroom, Office 365, Moodle and other systems.
