A day in our life
Contemporary learning environments are designed to meet the needs of students in a digital age. Contemporary learning spaces offer flexibility and opportunities for collaboration, independence and connectivity to global resources. In Years 4, 5 and 6 at St Catherine’s, students’ learning is supported by access to portable technologies. The approach is developed out of the following emerging issues which relate to our 1 to 1 program and its implications for contemporary learning and teaching.
Learning and Teaching
Learners and teachers create contemporary learning environments and quality learning outcomes as they shape and enrich their own and others’ worlds.
Contemporary learning is personalised and provides anytime, anywhere access for students to portable technologies.
Teachers’, students’ and parents’ access to the Australian Curriculum and supporting professional resources will be delivered online.
Brisbane Catholic Education provides access to teacher and student online learning and teaching environments and content. For example, LIFE (Learning Management System), Live @ Edu (email), Google Drive
This is underpinned by the following assumptions:
The world of students within and beyond the school is connected by the use of contemporary information processing, communication and collaboration tools.
Teachers engage in continuous learning to enhance their professional practice and the practices of their students.
School leaders, teaching staff and parents create the conditions that enable the vision to be realised.
Parents are empowered to become actively involved in their child’s education by accessing online communication, learning, reporting and monitoring systems.
Planning and resourcing is future-focused and flexibly delivered within the learning context of the school.
