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 (6th Gen) in Primary and MacBook Pro or MacBook Air computers in 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 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, MacBooks 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.
We are pleased to offer Cornish families discounted prices for students and teachers on iPad, Mac, AppleCare and selected accessories from both Apple and JB HiFi. Both of these companies provide competitive pricing throughout the year and are well worth comparing. They also offer extended warranties and finance options.
