Information and Communication Technology

Aberfoyle Park High School's core business is to ensure that our students are engaged and able to learn to a high standard. Utilising technology assists in achieving this aim. The application of ICT in education at APHS refers to an array of technologies that are applied in a variety of ways, not to a single approach. ICT is used in a diversity of ways at Aberfoyle Park High School and can be best described under three main headings:

  • ICT as the focus of innovation
  • Teaching and learning with ICT
  • Educational management with ICT

We also have a number of high-end ICT labs which run industry standard software like Final Cut, Sibelius, Adobe and Autodesk suites.

Parents are supported through evening introductory classes and can easily check attendance and homework through our Daymap Parent Portal.

APHS has invested significantly to ensure that our ICT infrastructure can accommodate the ever-increasing technological demands of education in the 21st century. We have redesigned a number of rooms in the school to facilitate 21st century teaching and learning and these are known as our e-Learning commons. The e-Learning Commons provide flexible space, modern, adaptable furniture, access to pods of internet-enabled devices, ultra short throw data projectors, and wireless streaming devices and/or interactive whiteboards.

The school has particular strengths in the area of Information & Communication Technology and provides cutting edge development and learning opportunities for students and staff alike. 

Across the school we have ultra short throw data projectors, and/or large screen TV’s, streaming devices and/or interactive whiteboards to further facilitate embedding IT into teaching and learning. We have a robust wifi network that can accommodate 1000s of devices and we have a program of continual development that keeps us future proof. In addition to our substantial and effective wireless network, we have a very strong network core that is constantly updated to be able to keep up with the high demand that our ICT rich classrooms demand.
