Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is a powerful tool for learning and at Riverview we focus on using ICT tools embedded in best practice of teaching and learning to meet present and future learning needs for all students.
We utilise technology in an innovative and creative manner so that the learning outcome for students are presented with depth and quality. Students in Year 5–6 and are issued with an iPad and students in Years 7–12 are issued with a laptop. We use a combination of digital and traditional text books, and integrate many internet or cloud-based services into the daily student experience. Each faculty in the College has allocation for an IT Integrator who works with the Head of Faculty to ensure consistency in technology use and learning experiences for all classes and stages.
All students have access to our online Learning Management System, known as Canvas, which hosts all of our digital learning resources and programs, and can be accessed both on campus and at home. Assignments can be completed directly into Canvas, and in turn automatically graded.
