To prepare our students to meet the challenges and opportunities of an ever-changing world, Centenary SHS has made technology-assisted learning (eLearning) one of our major priorities.
Our students undertake a range of challenging learning experiences that utilise technology, such as video production, coding, robotics, electronics and industrial design. These opportunities will help prepare them for life in the creative, connected workforce of the future.
eLearning also complements the work done in every subject by giving access to new ways of learning. Students can collaborate, communicate, research and study in ways not possible before and with a seamless connection between home and the classroom. For example, through the OneNote learning platform, all students have the ability to communicate seamlessly with their teacher and peers.
Teachers continue to explore new and better ways of using technology, finding the right balance between screen time and traditional teaching methods. The aim of our BYOD program is to facilitate rather than replace good teaching and learning practices while opening up new possibilities for students.
To realise the full benefits of eLearning, we encourage every family to provide their student with a personal digital device. The school supports these devices through our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program.
