ICT

We are a learning community and we use technology to develop independent, lifelong learners who know how to make a difference in the world.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) vision

Our vision is ‘Anytime, anywhere access to Information and Communications Technology to support collaborative, inquiry based, student centered learning in a safe and secure manner’.

This is part of a long flexible ICT approach that grows and changes with our learning needs.

Our College uses an individually owned model for ICT to support learning and the iPad Air 2 (Primary) and MacBook Pro or MacBook Air computers (Secondary) are ‘tools for school’. We work with parents to ensure a positive College and home partnership to support students.

As part of our Growing Up Digital program across the school, we expect students of Cornish College to think critically, behave safely and participate responsibly.

The Cornish Learning and Information Centre

The Cornish Learning and Information Centre is a shared space at the centre of our teaching and learning community. Our MakerSpace is developing into a hub for creative, design and making, including the use of a range of technologies and is led by the interests of our students.  

Through our library webpage students have access to high quality print and digital resources ‘anywhere, anytime’ via personal devices including iPads, notebooks and smart phones.  

We provide Information Literacy programs which teach students to be ethical digital citizens, able to critically analyse, choose and use information and share it with others. We encourage students to be mindful when printing their work, we promote paper recycling and we redistribute resources we no longer need to other institutions.

Family Funded Program

We have a Family Funded program to offer competitive pricing for students and teachers on iPad, Mac, AppleCare and selected accessories.

Member of our community can purchase items through the Cornish College web store, as well as through telesales (on 133-622) or in an Apple Store. You simply need to let the Apple representative know that you are looking to purchase under the Cornish College Family Funded program.
