Now in its fourth year, the One-to One Laptop Program equips all students in Years 7-12 with the opportunity to become confident learners, in a digital environment, while acquiring the 21st Century skills that are critical for the future.

By the middle of 2014, this exciting integration of technology into the classroom will be extended into the Primary School with the planned introduction of a One-to-One Tablet program for all students in Years 3-5.

The importance of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) in Teaching and Learning is fundamental to the Australian Curriculum across all subjects and is a powerful tool for enhancing learning, as it creates a dynamic and immersing classroom environment, which students find engaging and challenging.

Over the recent Summer holidays, a major upgrade of Moriah’s wireless network facilities has further enhanced the school’s integration of ICT into the classroom, ensuring that students are able to use their Laptops more efficiently, and maximising support for an extensive personalised learning environment.

Moriah’s teachers are constantly kept up to date through a rich and diverse Professional Development program to take advantage of all that ICT integration has to offer.  They are enthusiastic about moving from a teacher-centred to a student-centred learning environment in which teaching and learning resources can be presented using a wide range of media, thereby appealing to different learning styles and engaging a greater number of students.

By embracing the latest technologies and applications from a young age, Moriah College is nurturing students that are responsible digital citizens, and shaping a generation, which is more prepared than ever for the professional world that lies ahead.
