Le Fevre High School is an IB World School that is committed to a vision of providing a high-quality ICT environment that supports student learning and develops successful global citizens of the 21st century. Recently the school has reviewed our ICT Strategy and based on the extensive evaluation, we have decided to move to a new model for the provision of student ICT devices, to enable a true one-to-one device ratio. This approach will also support learning at home.

To achieve this aim, the school has decided to implement a Chromebook Program for the 2021 Year 9 students and for 2022 year 7 students. This will provide the necessary platform to connect students with cloud-based computing including Internet access, Daymap (our Learner Management System), Google G-Suite, and the Department provided Office 365 platform. Coupled to this, the school in partnership with the Governing Council is investing heavily in its backbone ICT infrastructure to ensure a seamless end-user experience when onsite. Whilst out of school, students will need access to an Internet connection for full Chromebook functioning however offline options are available and students will learn how to operate these aspects of the device.

Students will be expected to bring their Chromebook to school each day, fully charged, and to each lesson. This ensures that the Chromebook is a core tool for learning. This requirement will be a mandatory expectation for student learning behavior. Teachers will manage the use of the devices to ensure a satisfactory balance of screen time as part of the learning structures.
