eLearning & ICT
Charles La Trobe P-12 College teachers and students integrate digital technologies into learning activities across the curriculum.
The cornerstone of the eLearning program is the 1:1 notebook program for secondary students: Year 7 to 12 students are provided with a powerful Windows based laptop to use at home and at school. The school subsidises 60% of the laptop program and parents contribute 40% of the funds. This program ensures all secondary students have access to a computer and the internet at all times.
The College is gradually moving to a fully online environment, providing staff, students and parents with powerful collaboration and communication tools. This includes:
- Compass School Manager: Compass provides a College calendar, news bulletins, emails/College communication and student attendance data. Students and parents are provided with separate login. Semester reports are also available in Compass.
- Learning Management System: in 2017 the College is trialling CANVAS an online learning management portal. Canvas will provide students, staff and parents with access to course program overviews, assessment and homework task information and, in time, will support the College move toward, progressive or ‘real time’ reporting processes.
- Student Email: students are provided with a school based email account which allows them to communicate with teachers outside class time.
- Student Collaboration Portal: enables students to save and access data from classes as well as collaborate and communicate with teachers.
- Clickview Online: provides students with access to 1000 VEA approved videos online (learning resource).
- Maker Space: our new ‘Maker Space’ provides students with 3D Printers and Arduino Coding Kids, to promote STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) education.
