ICT and eLearning
“Information and communication technologies transform the ways that students think and learn and give them greater control over how, where and when they learn.”
Mr Murray James - Director of ICT
The College’s approach to technology acknowledges that it is like any other tool. It is how it is used that determines its success. Technology is a modern tool with a place in the classroom and the College recognises its value. To date, Sheldon College has assisted students’ ICT skills development by providing access to dedicated ICT curriculum programs and a range of ICT tools. These include dedicated computer labs, College provided desktops and laptops, sets of mobile devices for our Prep to Year 4 students for contextual based mobile learning, and well equipped Senior and Junior Learning Centres.
