Emerald Secondary College is committed to providing rich and differentiated learning experiences for our students. Access to appropriate technology through the provision of 1:1 laptop computers has been a goal for the College for some time.
We believe that giving students immediate access to technology in a 1:1 program will help engage them in the learning process in new and creative ways. This is an exciting opportunity for our students who will become increasingly skilled at using technology to access and present information, to problem solve, and to work collaboratively. Students will learn to develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, practices and attitudes necessary to actively contribute as a 21st century citizen, capable of shaping our future and being productive members of the workforce.
