Learning Technology

St Mary’s provides students in Years 4,  5 and 6 access to 1:1 technology and offers contemporary learning opportunities and the development of 21st-century skills.

These skills include self-regulation, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving and creative thinking. Devices are not the only tool to teach these skills, but they assist to build these skills in students. The 1:1 technology assists with the development of digital literacy, digital fluency, and digital citizenship. It also allows us to move forward in meeting the needs of our learners and curriculum requirements.
