Technology plays a significant role in the way our young people learn and how education is delivered in the modern classroom. To facilitate 21st century learning, by 2025 all students in years 7 to 10 at Capella State High will have their own iPad in every lesson, every day.
To support our parents and school community, for year 7 cohorts commencing each year from 2022, we offer an
iPad Student Resource Scheme, which ensures every student has access to a device, ongoing IT support, and accidental damage coverage. At the end of the participation period, families have the option to take ownership of the device. Details of the scheme are included in our enrolment pack.
Alternatively, students may supply their own iPad through the Department of Education's
BYOx v2 scheme. Personally provisioned iPads must meet the requirements outlined in the enrolment pack, should include a stylus and keyboard, and must be enrolled in our network through
Microsoft Intune. For consistency, support and affordability, we recommend that all families join the
iPad Student Resource Scheme to acquire a school-provisioned device.
With thanks to a range of partnerships, including with BMA's Bowen Basin Bright Minds and Glencore, our students have access to a range of technology in our school, including:
- Class set of iPads
- Class set of Windows laptops
- Computer lab with desktop PCs
- Drones and robots for studies in STEM
- Large TouchBoards in most classrooms.
