Learning with ICT

Middle School students at St Andrew’s are active users of digital tools in their learning both in and outside of the classroom, and are encouraged to become responsible Digital Citizens.

St Andrew’s is proud to be acknowledged as one of the most innovative Office 365 schools in New Zealand. We have also embraced collaboration with cloud-based technology.

As part of our 1:1 Computing programme, all Year 8 and above students bring their own device to school, which is selected from a range of recommended models, and connected to online resources through the College’s wireless network. This enables information to be shared between teachers and students in real time, greatly enhancing the learning experience.

Technology Initiatives

Our Technology programme is led by our Head of Innovation and Information Services, who helps students and staff to keep up with the unprecedented rate of change in this exciting sector. We are committed to applying technology widely to learning, linking with external experts, supporting collaborative learning, developing digital media and information literacy skills, and ensuring that technology is used to authentically and creatively to enrich students’ learning.
