eLearning

St Gregory's recognises the benefits of integrating learning technologies in the classroom to enhance student outcomes, facilitate the investigation process and strengthen student engagement. With a combination of designated classroom computers, a school computer lab and iPads across the school, St Gregory's is trialling the use of Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education (GAFE) in Term 3, 2015. A selection of Year 6 students will be provided with their own device - a Google Chromebook - to enhance their learning experience. It is expected that this process will help inform and prepare our teachers for the full implementation of Chromebooks and GAFE across all of Year 6 in 2016, with our sights set on implementation across Year 5 in the near future.

Some of the advantages of Chromebooks are:

Ease of Use

Survivability

Future-proofing

Secure for one user or many

Can be 'managed' within our Google Apps for Education environment
