Technology

The evolving technological world over the last decade has changed teaching practices and learning opportunities significantly.

Our students will develop essential digital literacy skills during their time at Chevalier College, which will assist them to be connected safely and purposefully in the digital learning world.

We are committed to providing an environment that ensures:

  • a positive and compelling learning experience through the use of digital technology
  • our students are active learners through their use of digital technology
  • internet safety for all
  • digital privacy and security for all
  • cyberbullying is not acceptable.

What devices do students use at Chevalier College?

Our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program requires that all students bring a device to school for their daily learning needs.

Years 7 to 10 require an iPad for their daily learning needs. This is to ensure that all students have access to software with the same capabilities in the classroom.

Years 11 and 12 are responsible for maintaining and bringing their own device to school and for the choice of the technology platform which best suits their requirements.

Cybersafety

Whilst student devices are connected to the Chevalier Network, internet access is both filtered and logged using School Manager by Family Zone.

Chevalier is currently partnering with Family Zone to launch a trial of a new device management service. The service will provide parents with visibility of their child’s device, and tools to manage access to apps and internet when not connected to the school network.

Infrastructure

Digital technologies are integrated in all areas of teaching and learning and these are a few examples of the infrastructure that supports this:

  • A sophisticated learning management system – Canvas enables easy collaboration and remote access to learning resources for students and teachers.
  • Professional recording studio in the Performing Arts Centre.
  • Online streaming of educational video resources and professional tutorials when off site.
  • Every corner of campus has fast and efficient wireless network.
  • Interactive, wireless projectors in every classroom.
  • Firewalls, filters and regular audits of activity to protect students from unauthorised content.
