In the Australian Curriculum, students develop Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school and in their lives beyond school. ICT capability involves students learning to make the most of the digital technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment.[ACARA - 2016]
There are a range of Information Technology (IT) facilities at Woodcrest State College. These facilities are designed to meet the needs of curriculum and to assist students in developing skills required for the future and include desktop computers, laptops and iPads.
In 2018, students in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 ACE Classes as well as all Year 11 students are expected to bring their own computing device to school every day as part of the BYOD Program. All other students in Years 7 – 12 are encouraged to bring their own computing device.
