The Learning Environment
In an Australian first for Catholic Education and Telstra, Delany Connected Learning offers a state-of-the-art, flexible learning space, which includes:
- furniture specifically designed for the 21st century digital classroom
- audio-visual technology
- video conferencing, and
- the ability to show, capture and share learning insights.
The learning environment at Delany College has been designed to reduce distractions and interruptions, allowing students to concentrate on their learning. The benefit is:
- no more movement between classes
- a flexible timetable, and
- clearer expectations.
Students fully utilise the available space to engage in learning activities, by using flexible desks, a mediascape room and conversation/collaboration areas.
All teachers and students have iPads to share their work via screens in the mediascape room, through a combination of blogs, or a specially created system where they upload their work. Our emphasis on developing a collaborative learning space enables deeper learning to take place.
The Delany Difference
Unlike the traditional secondary system where there is a teacher for each subject, a core group of teachers are constantly present to facilitate student learning and teaching for an integrated curriculum. An integrated curriculum combines subject areas and teaching in a holistic way which reflects the real world, which is much more interactive and dynamic. Students go beyond traditional learning and apply their leanings to develop abilities required by life in the twenty-first century.
There is more expertise in the room for students to draw from, and teachers are able to give instant feedback to individual students.
