Harness the Power
Our sunburnt land now has a laptop that can harness not only the power of the sun but also the power of imagination. Communities and children in our outback are severely disadvantaged by the lack of devices that supports their education with technology.
Implementation of the new Australian Curriculum, which will be heavily supported by online resources, together with an undertaking by governments to publish information about the performance of schools, further highlights the need to have “the right information in the right place at the right time” for use by students, teachers, parents and policy makers.
Students need challenging and engaging learning experiences. Teachers need tools to help them plan, deliver and report on learning programs that meet student needs. Parents increasingly expect to monitor and support student progress through online links to schools. The DER seeks to accelerate progress towards these goals. NSIP’s work supports the DER by providing leadership and support in the delivery of digital education products.
