Why NAC?

Innovation & Technology

IMG_0945The Nowra Anglican College maintains a reputation as one of the most technologically advanced schools in the Shoalhaven region. Students have access to modern computer labs across both the Junior and Senior Schools with current technology as well as a number of specialised pods in areas such as Science, Technology, Art, Music and the Junior School Enrichment area.

Further to this, and in response to student demand, the College is implementing a One to One Learning Strategy for Years 7 to 12 in 2015.  Research shows that this type of strategy gives students independence and control over their learning and enriches their classroom experience. Students are more comfortable with their own device and it provides huge potential for interactive lessons.  Students can ask questions at any time, enquire about assignments, or use resources (web links, files, online textbooks, etc.) sent or uploaded by teachers. These devices play a big role in the lives of our students and we are not only capitalising on this resource but teaching students about the powerful tool they possess.

2014 saw the introduction of eLearning courses for some HSC subjects. Course are delivered online in an interactive and engaging way. HSC subject choices and combinations in most schools are constrained by timetable lines. Offering courses via eLearning provides greater flexibility and wider subject choices and combinations.

In Time Reporting is innovative way of providing feedback to parents and students on assessment task performance. Meaningful feedback is known to a major contributor to academic improvement. Parents and students have access to the NAC Portal where they can see upcoming tasks and view the feedback on each task after is has been submitted. Students can write a reflective comment about their performance in each task. The Portal also shows information about upcoming events, student absences, awards and discipline matters. A weekly digest is also emailed to parents summarising all of the current Portal activity related to their child.

All of these capabilities transform the classroom dynamic and help engage the boys as active learners.
