Technology Programme: Year Six
At the commencement of the year, Year Six students are provided with a touch-enabled Windows device for use that year. The school has selected the Microsoft Surface device, ensuring it is capable of meeting all educational requirements, both in the classroom and at home. Year Six teachers are well-equipped to deliver an engaging experience for students using the Surface.
Technology Programme: Year Seven and Years Ten to Twelve
In 2018, the school’s One-to-One Technology Programme will expand to include Year Seven. Students in Year Seven will join students in Senior School in being provided with a touch-enabled Windows device.
Currently, the school provides a Microsoft Surface device, which provides access to a range of educational programmes and websites, as well as the Office 365 platform to facilitate online communication and collaboration through apps such as OneNote.
The Microsoft Surface device has been selected to support versatility of learning for our students and will be rolled out into Years Eight and Nine over the course of 2019 and 2020.
One-to-One iPad Programme: Years Eight and Nine (2018) and Year Nine (2019)
GSG introduced its first Technology Programme in 2012, requiring students to come equipped with an iPad to support their studies. As technology changes, the school responds to ensure we are meeting the educational needs of students. As of 2018, the iPad will begin to be phased out in Middle School. In 2018, only students in Years Eight and Nine will use an iPad. In 2019, students in Year Nine will use an iPad. Teachers will continue to deliver engaging digital experiences for students using iPads in Middle School.
