Information Communication Technology
Information technology continues to be a key component in how we support our teachers, students, school and system leaders, and staff in schools and offices. Consequently, technology has become more pervasive and plays an ever-increasing role in the daily lives of those in our community both on and off school grounds. Technology not only supports the demands of the academic environment, the needs of our administration, and the learning and quality of life of our students but also the well-being and safety of our entire community.
Technology makes it possible for every classroom to be a resource rich environment. All teachers and students have a Google for Education Plus account. Education Plus is the ultimate Google Workspace for Education edition. Townsville Catholic Education empowers educators to do their best work with tools that allow them to connect and engage learners from anywhere.
G Suite Learning portal delivers email to all students and staff, an extranet to collect files and resources from home, a suite of tools with which to create on-line, and filtered access to mail and internet.
Access To Devices
iPads, Chromebooks and Laptops in student and teacher hands means technology can be embedded in all learning areas and learning online is possible at all times. Some Colleges and High Schools allow for Bring Your Own Device for students.
Technology aligns with syllabus objectives and the emphasis is on the use of technology to learn rather than learning to use technology.
Information and Communications Technology is supported by our Information Technology & Services Team.
