CURRICULUM - Digital Technology

 Our aim at Tarneit P-9 College is to create citizens that are digitally literate for the 21st Century. The iLearn programprovides an opportunity for our students to enter a new world of curriculum possibilities, allowing greater engagement and involvement in their learning. Learning experiences across the school are purposefully designed to develop the attributes of a life-long learner. In this way, each student learns to develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, practices and attitudes necessary to be an engaged,
robust, 21st century citizen capable of shaping our future.

We operate a 1:1 iPad program in years 3-9 called the iLearn Program. Students also have access to class sets of iPads in P-2 on a needs basis.

iLearn Program

Please be advised that year 3 - 9 teachers plan with the specific intent that that every child has an iPad in hand. This does not mean that every moment involves using technology. It is on a needs basis.

Specific Details about the iLearn Program

One-to-one learning allows every student access to their own device in a wireless environment, allowing them to learn at their own pace and ability levels . One-to-one initiatives have gained momentum worldwide, and are increasingly seen as a key to transforming education and better preparing students to succeed in the new world.

In the iLearn Program, students' access to an iPad and the internet enables them to be self-directed and receive highly personalised instruction. Students use their personal devices to do research, homework, problem-solve, team projects, email and academic coursework.

Families can purchase iPads from any store they wish as long as the iPad meets the mandatory requirements below.


• An iPad must be at least any version of iPad with a lightning charger
• We highly recommend Gen 5 devices • Device must be running the latest iOS.
• ALL devices must be WiFi ONLY. Strictly no 3G capable device will be permitted at school.
