What type of online services are used at our college?
North Geelong Secondary College uses online services to support our high quality and innovative teaching and learning environment. Compass and Google Apps and other online learning tools are used to support and enhance the educational experiences of all students. Access to a vast array of tools online allows our students to develop skills that are required for their future in a world where connecting, communicating, collaborating and being creative are integral. Access to these online tools provides students with the opportunity to explore learning beyond the walls of the classroom, and in doing so, also teach them important skills about how to be critical consumers and ethical users of the information and websites that they encounter.
Online services that the college uses
As part of the regular learning program at North Geelong Secondary College, students are required to engage in the use of online services that sometimes require them to create an account so that their work is stored and shared with their teachers, peers and parents. The two main online services used by our students are Compass and Google Apps for Education as part of their daily learning program at the college. These services support students to develop contemporary skills in communicating, collaborating and creating online. Additionally, Compass allows students, parents and staff to have a common place to access student work and academic progress, as well as other useful resources. The college administers and supervises the creation of logins for both Compass and Google Apps for all staff, students and parents as part of the enrolment process at NGSC.
At times, students may also be encouraged to use other services online that can enhance their ability to produce high quality work or engage in their learning at a deeper level. Students create their own logins to these services, or use their college administered Google account or login to use these services.
