Manor Lakes P-12 College strives to provide a personalised learning program through a rigorous curriculum that integrates the use of Information and Communication Technology. Currently, students in years Prep, 1, 6, 7 and 8 participate in a 1:1 iPad program and students in years 9-12 participate in a BYOD model. In 2015 the school will be implementing a school wide 1:1 program. This technology, plus the fantastic wireless network available to students, allows for learning to take place anywhere, anytime. It is important to note that mobile devices have not simply replaced pen and paper; but have enhanced student creativity and collaboration.
