Digital Learning @ St James


St James College K-10 teachers and students integrate digital technologies into learning activities across the curriculum.

Primary & Secondary School 

The College provides a blended ICT approach for primary students. We provide iPads and Windows based desktops. The College also provides primary students with access to digital learning resources such as Purplemash & Seesaw to support students support their learning. The College also offers specialist digital technologies and STEM lessons to primary school students as part of supporting the development of eLearning and ICT skills.

In the secondary school, each student learning community is equipped with the latest technology and teaching resources to support student learning. Students have access to computers from Prep onward. It is essential that all students bring a 'fully charged' computer to class every session, every day.  

All students have access to digital coding and robotics programs.  In 2022, we will establish our 'Digital Leaders Program across the middle school to enable our highly skilled students to provide tech’ support to their peers and staff!

The College provides a fully online environment, providing staff, students and parents with powerful collaboration and communication tools. This includes:

  • Compass School Manager: Compass provides a College calendar, news bulletins, emails/College communication and student attendance data. Students and parents are provided with separate login. Semester reports are also available in Compass.
  • Seesaw Classroom:  Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. 
  • Purple Mash: Purple Mash is an award-winning cross curricular website for nursery and primary school children. It enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way.
  • Online Learning: Google Classroom is currently used to faciliate and support an online learning across the college. We aim to integrate a more comprehensive and dynamic Learning Managemen System later in 2022 to help provide students, staff and parents with access to course program overviews, assessment and homework task information and, in time, will support the College move toward, progressive or ‘real time’ reporting processes.  
  • Student Email: students are provided with a CET based email account which allows them to communicate with teachers outside class time.
  • Essential Assessment: Essential Assessment is a leading provider of a unique Australian curriculum Numeracy and Literacy assessment model that delivers a whole school approach to summative and formative assessment for Australian schools.
