Information Technologies

Learning with Technology is not optional for 21st Century students - it is simply part of the environment they live in.

"The Melbourne Declaration on the Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008) recognises that in a digital age, and with rapid and continuing changes in the ways that people share, use, develop and communicate with ICT, young people need to be highly skilled in its use. To participate in a knowledge-based economy and to be empowered within a technologically sophisticated society now and into the future, students need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make ICT work for them at school, at home, at work and in their communities."

The LSA supports schools in the critical and strategic delivery of Information Technologies that support excellent learning outcomes through the provision of appropriate, current and relevant advice, professional development and training.

Lutheran schools also benefit through buying arrangements negotiated by the LSA with key vendors that give schools the opportunity to provide cutting-edge technology at extremely competitive prices. In addition to a number of niche application software offerings, LSA has major agreements in place with both HP Aust and Microsoft for hardware and software.

Rod Wearn is employed as an ICT Consultant available to all LSA schools to support students, teachers and administrators in the the delivery and use of the best possible computer technologies.
