Information Communication Technology (ICT) is ubiquitous in the life of learners at school and beyond. Radford is focused on using technology to support learning throughout the curriculum.

Radford's philosophy of lifelong learning means that it is very important for our students to know how to use modern technology effectively and participate in learning that connects them to the wider world. Using ICT, we provide authentic learning experiences that engage students in a world that is saturated with information, images and sound.

1-to-1 ICT Program

Radford has a 1-to-1 ICT Program with all students from Year 4 to Year 12 now using their own personal ICT device at school.

The latest educational research shows that students who have their own device spend more time in collaborative work, produce work of a higher quality and length, engage more deeply in problem-solving and critical thinking, improve research analysis skills, and most importantly, are more able to direct their own learning.

The 1-to-1 ICT Program:

  • ensures technology is available as a tool to support students in every lesson
  • initiates more differentiated and student-centred learning
  • allows us to provide and utilise high-quality and subject specific software and apps
  • provides constant access to the College's learning management systems.

In addition to ensuring students are ICT-literate, we support them in developing the skills to act ethically, morally and with respect when online. There are explicit opportunities for students to explore digital citizenship and Years 4–12 students sign an annual user agreement.

Our IT Helpdesk is available to our community to provide timely assistance and device troubleshooting support.
