Information Technology

Swan Valley Anglican Community School recognises that the development of teaching and learning processes become technology centric, with the focus on ensuring our students are prepared for future industries in a rapidly changing world. This change affects the traditional understanding of how subject matter is taught and creates the need for a strong set of social attitudes and institutional values.

With all students from Years 4-12 readily able to access a 1:1 device, we have the potential to engage our students in a wider range of curriculum opportunities and encourage students to explore new and creative ways of thinking. Our students have opportunities to create and design multimedia coursework, understand and program robotics, print digital designs in 3D and learn to communicate and collaborate in teams with schools across the globe.

1:1 Information

The School has changed from a parent-owned mandated-device program, to a school-owned device program with a compulsory parent levy applied annually for access to computer systems. This parent levy applies to all students in Years 4-12. Only School-owned computers will be allowed to be used as part of the 1:1 program.

ICT Policies

Students using IT Resources at the School must adhere to the Student Acceptable Use Policy outlined here.

An additional policy for students operating under the new ICT Levy, must signed by both student and their Parent/Guardian - located here.   

January 2022 Rollout

The timeline for those families involved in the January 2019 rollout is now coming to the end of three years and any extended warranties & accidental damage protection agreements will soon expire. All students with 2019 devices will be required to return their school-issued tablet, stylus, bag and power adapter to the ICT Service Desk on December 6, 2021. Details will be relayed through classroom teachers and Year Level Co-ordinators.

The School uses ACER Travelmate tablet PCs - with its flexible 360-degree design, durable construction, stylus-enabled touch screen and long battery life, the TravelMate tablet helps get students to the peak of their learning potential. For more information about the ACER TravelMate click here.
