Blackfriars has a strong focus on the use of ICT in the classroom to assist students in becoming successful global citizens. Students from Reception to Year 10 have a focus on the ICT General Capability of the Australian Curriculum and therefore successful application of such technologies is vital in our daily learning.
Bring Your Own Technology
Blackfriars employs a BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) policy for students in Years 7 to 12 as a means to ensure “anywhere, anytime learning”. Use of the Internet and digital technologies provides great educational benefits to students. Digital devices have the potential to encourage boys’ critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration and research skills, while preparing them for a digital world beyond school.
BYOT and school access to these technologies is facilitated with the expectation that students will act in a considerate, safe and responsible manner.
2022 Supply Chain
Unfortunately, due to the impact that COVID-19 has had on supply chains, we are unable to provide a supplier that can deliver devices before the start of the 2022 school term. Families are advised to purchase a device from a retailer (e.g. JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, etc.).
If you require assistance in selecting a device, please contact our Digital Technologies Coordinator, Mr Jak Francis >
Remote Learning Guidelines
Considering the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Blackfriars is ensuring that our eLearning is accessible and safe. The Blackfriars Remote Learning Guidelines document outlines the protocols for our community.
