Information and Communication Technologies
Loreto Normanhurst has a long tradition of integration of technology in the curriculum. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are used extensively at Loreto, with technology available in all learning spaces.
A 1:1 program is in place for Years 7-12 where all students and teachers receive a laptop to teaching and learning.
Primary students bring their own iPad in to School as part of the wider technology program at Loreto Normanhurst.
Loreto’s approach to holistic learning is fully enhanced through the use of learning technologies. Our aim, in partnership with teachers and parents, is for the students to view ICT as one of many tools to enhance learning and understanding.
Students are supported by teachers and ICT Integrators to help with their individual technology needs and project-based learning. We guide students in their use of their personal learning devices as well as prepare them for life beyond the school gate through developing understanding of their digital footprint, reputation and responsibilities as a digital citizen.
Loreto’s journey with technology in learning has evolved through diligent research and planning, identification of student learning needs and gleaning the wisdom of experienced educators.
The ICT Services team plays a critical role in providing a high standard of access to ICT across the campus. The ICT services team includes an ICT Service Desk for all students and staff to access support with any devices. This includes provisioning of all systems including student email and school portal. The ICT Service Desk is open 8:00am-4:00pm every day the School is open.
Students have excellent access to support for their technology use, and especially in exploring the latest versions of software in the classroom. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their technology needs, especially in diligently asking questions of teachers and the ICT staff for assistance whenever required.
