New tech for stu­dents

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS -

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.
