Definition: Information technology is the “processes, applications and equipment by which we access create, analyse, present and communicate information.” (Information Technology and the Learning Process” Gateway 1996)
Rationale: New and emerging technologies provide exciting opportunities to access the global community and its complex communications systems. Information Technology is an integral part of our society and culture and access to the information available relies upon students developing the necessary skills and understanding to become effective and discerning users.
Policy: Aquinas College is committed to empowering our students to create, shape, select and use Information Technology appropriately. Teaching and learning will include I.T. as an essential component of a learning culture that encourages students to become life long learners. Access to media rich rooms is provided by a booking system that will be updated as resources and levels of expertise expand. The justice issues that challenge our students, requiring them to make decisions about locating, analysing and synthesing the information obtained, will be examined within a framework of Catholic values.
Aquinas College has adopted an integrated model that supports the Purpose Statement of the K-10 Curriculum Framework (2002). Information Technology is an integral part of the teaching and learning program within each KLA.
Program development and implementation in each KLA will include:
Resources and Support Support for teachers and classrooms will be provided through the College Technology plan. This plan addresses needs of teachers, classroom and College and will be collaboratively managed by the Principal, the Learning Technologies Coordinator and the Business Manager.
