Mount Lilydale is committed to its strategy of helping students embrace future technologies to develop the use of collaborative tools for 21st Century learners. ICT is integrated throughout the College. Students are able to use laptops and IPads in the classroom and beyond, a local area network and wireless connections, electronic whiteboards and other software or educational technology.
At Mount Lilydale, we seek to do this in four ways:
Learning & Teaching
Helping students develop e-literacy by creating opportunities for self directed, independent and collaborative learning. This encourages students to cultivate skills in a variety of physical and electronic information resources to inquire, analyse, interpret and construct knowledge, ask informed questions and hone their critical thinking.
Equipping both physical and virtual classrooms, the College is integrating both curriculum and traditional library materials with progressive e-learning and information services, creating exciting learning environments.
Laptops & IPads
Classes use ICT resources both in dedicated Computer Labs; as well as general classrooms. Alongside the use of Electronic Smartboards, both students and teachers are able to research information and creatively produce projects and multimedia presentations of the highest standard. Through any of the College’s subject offerings, students are able to undertake such activities including Music Recording; Computer-Aided-Design and Modelling; Business and Finance projects; Multimedia (Film, Website, Online Digital Content); and scientific research.
A Learning Management System (LMS) has become very popular among educators around the world as a tool for creating online dynamic web sites for their students. They are resourced with activity modules such as to build richly collaborative communities of learning around their subject matter:
Parents are also able to view online subject class materials, upcoming assignments or homework tasks in order to better support their child’s learning from home.
