The Connect2learn project engages our current generation of students with their learning by bringing their own personal contemporary mobile devices to school to use with class activities, tasks and homework. This term we have piloted this project with classes from year 7, 8 and 9 and have implemented learning and personal organisational programs along the way.
All students at Gymea Technology High School will be able to bring their own devices to school and connect to the filterted wireless to access learning materials and engage in online earning content.
What kind of devices? See our guide Connect2learn Device Guide
At Gymea, we believe that these devices enable students to be self-directed with their learning and organisation as well as develop collaborative skills that reinforce both information and basic learning skills. Use of this device will enhance the teaching and learning and facilitate the development 21st century learning skills that better engage students in lifelong learning.
Students will be using their devices to access information, access online learning management tools and share their learning.
There is much more to this project that we will see develop throughout early 2014 that with Internet access, will provide both students and parents with access to student learning nd organizational materials any time and anywhere.
