Curriculum programs across Years 7 to 12 at Hervey Bay State High School rely on digital pedagogy. Our curriculum is specifically designed for students to engage in authentic learning experiences (face to face and online) focusing on collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and embedding information and communication technologies across all subjects, including feedback and assessment.
With today's access to digital technologies, all students need to have a seamless movement between school and home. We encourage all students to have a personal device (laptop or iPad) to support their learning and this is a responsibility of families under the Student Resource Scheme (SRS) to provide.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a key capability of the Australian Curriculum. Students develop capability in using ICT for tasks associated with information access and management, information creation and presentation, problem-solving, decision-making, communication, creative expression and empirical reasoning - including conducting research, creating multimedia information products, analysing data, designing solutions to problems, controlling processes and devices, and supporting computation while working independently and in collaboration with others.
Two programs exist at Hervey Bay State High School to support digital teaching and learning:
- BYOxLink - available to all students.
Compatible BYOxLink devices are able to be brought into the school and connect to the school's network. Please refer to the links on this page for further information, including information on how to connect compatible devices from home.
- iPad Loan Program - available to students in Years 7 to 9
These devices are initially school-owned and are centrally managed and monitored while the student is enrolled at Hervey Bay State High School. This is a three year program. Please refer to the links on this page for further information.
Please note - students who take part in either program are required to return the relevant agreement form before connecting and using their device/s.
