Integratin f technlgies has the ptential t engage students in ways nt previusly pssible, t enhance their achievement, t create new learning pssibilities and t extend students interactin with their lcal and glbal cmmunities. Unley High Schl is a technlgy-rich envirnment, integrating technlgy int all teaching and learning areas t enhance learning and t prepare ur students fr their rles in the digital wrld in which we live.

T achieve this, Unley High Schl is currently implementing a range f new and innvative appraches t teaching and learning using new and emerging learning technlgies. Ultimately, we aim t achieve a 1-t-1 teaching and learning envirnment. The fcus n the use f new technlgies in the teaching and learning at Unley High Schl, means it is necessary t establish apprpriate plicies and prcedures. Whilst prviding the pprtunity t enhance and extend human interactin, empathy and understanding, the misuse f infrmatin and cmmunicatin technlgies can significantly damage an individual s dignity. Therefre, it is a requirement that all students and their caregivers read and abide by the schl s Acceptable Use f Learning Technlgies Plicy. Further, it is a Department f Educatin and Child Develpment (DECD) requirement that all students and their caregivers sign the Acceptable Use f Learning Technlgies Plicy befre the student is permitted t access learning technlgies n any Departmental Schl site.
