ILT

It is important for your boy to take responsibility for when and how he studies. To support your son's study and learning we have made SelfControl available for him to download from Self Service for his laptop. The SelfControl application enables your son to be self-regulating with respect to interruptions from his favourite applications and social media. When he wishes to focus on study for a lengthy period he can set SelfControl to suppress his notifications and avoid accessing sites for up to 24 hours. We have packaged 30 common sites in the blacklist, but he is free to add to the list as he wishes. If you would like further information please contact Dr Nick Spadaccini, ILT Curriculum Integration Manager (NSpadaccini@scotch.wa.ed.au).
