Technology at Wavell SHS

Wavell SHS has had a long tradition of using modern technology for the delivery of teaching and learning programs. Computing technology is a tool that enhances pedagogy, facilitates the creation and sharing of knowledge and enables differentiation in learning. Our teachers use information communication technologies in the classroom in an educationally purposeful way, when appropriate, to reinforce the curriculum.

At Wavell SHS, students have access to desktop computers in computer laboratories, and laptop computers in mobile trolleys. Learning spaces are fitted out with ceiling mounted data projectors which are used to support the teaching and learning process. Students can print to and retrieve print jobs in A3, A4 sizes or in mono or colour from a fleet of multi-function printing devices spread throughout the school. The internet is provided throughout the school and can be accessed in the computer labs or using the mobile laptops which access the internet through the wireless technology located throughout the school.
