INFORMATION LEARNING TECHNOLOGY

Technology changes the way we do things and the ways we interact. Scotch College uses technology to achieve a variety of learning outcomes. The boys in Andrew Tibbitt's Year 12 Economics class recently joined their PLC counterparts in a telepresence-based tutorial. Students presented to each other their research on the economic performance of selected countries. Question and answers sessions between both classes, including input from two teachers made for a rich learning interaction.

This telepresence session was reported in a news article posted on Australia's Academic and Research Network (aarnet) website celebrating that Scotch and PLC were the first schools to connect their high speed 10G network.

Our Digital Signage is proving popular with the Scotch community. It delivers the most up-to-date information to students and staff including daily notices, weekly programmes and changes to timetables. We also have enjoyed slide shows of the boys' cross-country achievements and student videos documenting their construction of D & T projects. Some beautifully edited videos of past tours were also presented, and keenly viewed by the next generation of tour participants.

The next ILT Parent Workshop in the Bunning Resource Centre will be:
