Apollo 1 to 1 Program

Learning in a 1 to 1 environment can open up new possibilities for learning or make it easier to exploit existing learning opportunities.  We have the power to motivate students and bring education to life with a more engaging and interactive curriculum.

Student Engagement

To inspire and engage this new generation of learners, government, educators and experts are investing in the exciting opportunities of 1 to 1 learning.  

They have recognised that schools can either capitalise on young people’s affinity for technology and prepare them for an increasingly technology driven world—or struggle to engage them as technology advance

The National Curriculum and ICT

Students develop ICT competence when they learn to:

Investigate - using ICT to plan and refine information searches; to locate and access different types of data and information and to verify the integrity of data when investigating questions, topics or problems
 

Create - using ICT to generate ideas, plans, processes and products to create solutions to challenges or learning area tasks
 

Communicate - using ICT to communicate ideas and information with others adhering to social protocols appropriate to the communicative context (purpose, audience and technology)
 

Operate - applying technical knowledge and skills to use ICT efficiently and to manage data and information when and as needed

Apply - appropriate social and ethical protocols and practices to operate and manage ICT.
