1 to 1 Laptop Program
In 2019, Our Lady of the Southern Cross College rolled out its 1 to 1 Laptop Computer Program for all students in Years 7 to 12. In 2021, this is being further enhanced by the roll out of in class 1 to 1 laptops for students in Year 5 and 6. It's about recreating the way we work and think to enhance the curriculum for the benefit of our students learning. We are developing 21st century learners with 21st century skills. To this end, we have installed interactive whiteboard panels in classrooms which can connect with the laptop devices. A new digital Learning Management System (LMS) CANVAS is in place which will allow students 24/7 access to their subjects. A cyber safety platform called Family Zone has been installed on the laptop devices. Family Zone is not only a cyber safety platform, but also a classroom management and network management tool. A family subscription licence for each family with a student in Year 7 to 12 has been purchased by the College to enable parents to log in and install the App at home and on students' mobiles.
