New tech for students
FROM Term one 2018 all students in ACT public high schools and colleges from years 7 to 10 will receive a Chromebook device.
“This initiative will ensure every secondary student in Canberra public schools has the same access to a device to enhance their learning through technology,” Minister for Education Yvette Berry said.
“Irrespective of family circumstances, every student will have an equal opportunity to access technology-based learning when and where they need it.”
“With a single device as the standard across classes and schools it also means Canberra teachers don’t need to be experts in every platform or spend valuable lesson time trouble shooting multiple devices,” she said.
