Digital Learning

Mount Ridley College encourages the use of and incorporates a range of devices into lessons. Staff actively manage, support, and integrate devices into the curriculum, learning activities, and communications functions.
Students are supported to become digitally literate, innovative, and confident users of technology who contribute as positive digital citizens within the College community. We have a dedicated Digital Learning team that helps to monitor and regulate the use of devices across the college and works with Curriculum area teams to incorporate technology into a diverse range of student activities.

The Digital Learning team at Mount Ridley College will drive engagement and empowerment to all learners (teachers and students) preparing them to become digitally literate, innovative and confident users who contribute as positive digital citizens within the college community. 

Mount Ridley College prefers the use of iPads as a learning tool for Prep to Year 4 students; and tablet/laptop device, for Years 5 -12 students.


Mount Ridley College encourages students to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). More information can be found on our BYOD page here.


Students and teachers across all disciplines are finding new ways to make learning more interactive. We use iPads and laptops to deliver and support the curriculum. For example, in Italian and Japanese classes, students practise speaking by recording and playing back their voices. In math class, students research market costs to create a realistic housing budget. For our techy lovers, we run the Coding Club, a Makers Space where students can work on a project of their choice and have our unique ICT Captain program to develop our students into ICT experts.

Digital Technology is offered as a subject to students in year 5 and 8, robotics at 7 and 10. In the senior school there are also dedicated computing subjects, innovations and data analytics.





Mount Ridley College is an accredited eSmart school. This has been an extensive journey. We are strong believers in building cyber smart kids.
Strategies include understanding what it means to be a good digital citizen, online bullying, accessing correct online resources (appropriate websites, referencing and copyright) and online ethics.
An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer while being savvy about the pitfalls.
