At Mulgrave, we have a long history of using technology to enhance learning. We know that appropriate use of a range of software programmes and communication tools can have a very positive impact on the students learning and achievements.
From Grade 2 to 6, students are required to bring an i-Pad to school every day so it can be readily accessible when it is required to be used to support their learning. In grades 7-12 the students are required to have a laptop of their choosing and as they go through the school, they are required to make increasingly choices as to when it is appropriate to use technology to support their learning.
We are aware that using technology to support learning has many advantages but there may also be dangers. The teachers work hard with students and parents to ensure that students and parents to ensure that technology is used appropriately as just one form of learning and particularly that technology does cause too much distraction or for students to have unbalanced lives with two much screen time.
