Emanuel School is a connected learning community that integrates technology seamlessly to maximise educational outcomes and opportunities for building 21st century skills.
Emanuel School has a comprehensive 1:1 mature laptop program, delivering educational excellence and consistent service. Students in Years 7-12 have Macbook laptops, while our Primary School students have iPads. Students and staff are provided with a rich range of educational and professional software and Apps. We aim to incorporate Information and Communications Technology (ICT) into the general learning environment in meaningful ways, within the Harvard University’s Teaching for Understanding (TfU) and Cultures of Thinking (CoT) frameworks. We constantly look ahead, evaluating emerging technologies and planning our ICT provisions to support effective student learning.
Students in Years 3-6 have their own iPad. The ratio of iPads for students in Years K-2 is one per two students. Students are excited to use iPads, intuitively and quickly engaging with tasks rather than spending time navigating and learning software applications. There is a class set of MacBook Airs available for Primary students to use whenever a laptop might be needed. Students also benefit from the use of interactive whiteboards in all of our Primary School classrooms.
Anywhere, anytime learning access to Reshet Canvas, Emanuel’s 24/7 online Learning Management System, allows students to engage creatively, access and submit work, and express deeper learning and understanding within a secure, enriched learning environment. Reshet (Web) provides wider communication for our school community and ensures users always have access to relevant information.
