At St John’s Regional College ICT (Information and Communication Technology) is considered to be a fundamental component of learning and teaching.
The use of new and emerging technologies is integrated into the practice of teachers via the establishment of a professional learning community where collaboration is valued to enable the sharing of innovative ideas and contemporary pedagogical practice. This practice aims to facilitate student learning so that students become confident and discerning users of technology with a clear understanding of the role of technology within the local and global learning communities. We will provide students with shared eLearning experiences which encompass essential ICT skills and attitudes that embody Gospel values and the Catholic ethos.

St John’s Regional College seeks to provide tools and resources for the 21st century learner. Excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. Increasing access to technology is essential for that future, and one of the learning tools of these 21st century students is the Laptop. The individual use of laptops in the junior years is a way to empower students to maximise their full potential and to prepare them for further study and the workplace. Learning results from the continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents/guardians and the extended community. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Effective teaching and learning integrates technology into the curriculum any time, any place.
