Navigating the future

In the closing lines of Back to the Future Part III, Doc Brown tells Marty, "The future hasn't been written yet, so make it a good one!"

We echo those sentiments at King's Christian College in the strongly held belief that it is smart, safe and responsible values that will stay the course of the future, no matter what technological innovations come along.

This website is dedicated to providing information that helps navigate our students into a future they create in smart, safe and responsible ways.

1:1 Policy

Our 1-1 Policy contains information about our expectations regarding the use of learning technology on a personal level and the responsibilities that come with that privilege.

Concern

In our highly connected age, student issues seem to go beyond the classroom and the schoolyard and into the home environment. King's Concern is a system that help`s students report on issues that range from less serious issues like pirating music through to areas where the police need to be involved.

Smart

While technology is always changing, discover ways that you can help your children use it in a smarter way to leverage the power that technology has to enhance learning.

Responsible

Technology in learning coupled with digital devices creates challenges for the responsible use of this great enabler. Discover some strategies and inspiration for helping your child use technology in a responsible way both at home and at school.

In K-12 education, PBL has evolved as a learning and teaching framework that addresses subject area content and learning dispositions through rigorous, authentic, hands-on learning experiences. Unlike projects that are tacked on at the end of a unit (this is called Project-Oriented Learning), the projects in true PBL are central to the learning.
