Technology at Pymble

At Pymble, your daughter’s experience in the digital learning environment ensures she is ready to step into her future as a confident, innovative and responsible user of technology. She is prepared for the changing nature of the global landscape and the way technology enables her to shape her world.

Digital Fluency is a one of the College’s 4 Strategic Pillars. It prepares our students for the future of work and life in a digital world. A Pymble girl’s character will develop as they create a rich digital identity, becoming digital citizens who make authentic contributions to their local and global communities.

As she works with her teachers, a Pymble girl develops confidence in her ability to select and use a range of digital tools to organise and analyse information and to collaborate and connect with others. She learns how technology can deepen areas of passion and interest through effective research. Technology provides her the opportunity to think critically to understand problems, gain insights and creatively develop solutions.

From her earliest days at the College, your daughter will have access to intentionally selected digital learning tools. Students in K-6 receive a College-provided iPad, granting them age-appropriate access to enriching digital learning opportunities. This is where she begins to develop an understanding of what it means to be a responsible and ethical digital citizen.

Year 7 marks the beginning of your daughter’s BYOT journey, where she takes on greater responsibility for her learning through the ownership of her own laptop. With greater independence comes more explicit instruction how to confidently manage and operate in the digital world. As she progresses through the Secondary School, she thrives in using her device for a wider variety of learning outcomes. She harnesses the power of technology to become the author and designer of meaningful learning experiences. Her teachers continue to support her appropriate engagement in her expanding digital world.

Both the curricular and co-curricular landscapes empower students with passion to develop leadership in the field of technology. In their classrooms and in co-curricular activities, students work with teachers to co-design diverse opportunities in response to the evolving interest of Pymble girls. Engaging with mentors and external experts, participating in excursions and a range of national competitions, girls can choose to focus on areas such as robotics, STEM, coding and entrepreneurism.

Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Program

At Pymble, we recognise the importance of leveraging technology for an innovative future. Technology is one of our College Strategic Pillars, aligning with our focus on growth through Deep Learning. With this in mind, the College runs a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Program for Years 7 to Year 12, providing students more flexibility in both how they learn and what technology they use.

The BYOT program provides teachers with opportunities to design open-ended learning experiences for their students that promote choice along with creative and critical thinking. The diversity of technology available in the Pymble BYOT program will help foster a culture that respects that there are many different ways to solve problems, encouraging our students to unlock different modes and processes of learning. These skills will be invaluable in developing their Digital Fluency.
