Twenty first century schooling demands light flexible solutions to technology in the classroom. At Canberra Grammar School we are looking at how students can be connected to the wider world of learning through a dynamic wireless network well suited to the range of devices the students and staff have access to and will need in the future.
As light mobile computing options grow we are positioning both our teaching approaches and our approach to how students learn to take advantage of global resources and to develop an international outlook for our students that extends beyond their schooling.
In 2012 we commenced a Mobile Technology Trial with teachers and students of Year 9. The trial aimed to ensure that not only our networks were capable of supporting dynamic distributed learning, but also to commence the personal and professional development of both students and teachers to enable them to adapt to a more innovative and collaborative classroom. The trial has enabled us to engage with teachers, students and most importantly parents about the way we use technology to support learning both in the classroom and at home.
The use of light mobile technology will continue to grow and become a feature of the innovative teaching and learning undertaken at Canberra Grammar School.
