ICT Online Services
Gawler and District College strives to provide a wide range of ICT Services that will assist our students to become responsible, confident and capable Digital Citizens. All members of our learning community hold the responsibility to value technology and achieve technological proficiency to prepare our students for future jobs, which currently may not exist.
ICT provides young people with new and engaging ways to learn, but at the same time, they need to learn how to use this technology, including mobile devices and social networking sites, in a responsible and ethical manner. Students and their parents/caregivers are required to read, discuss and sign the appropriate Cyber Safety Use Agreement for their year level at enrolment and at the beginning of each year - please see the downloadable documents for the appropriate year levels on this page.
ICT Service Features
Daymap Parent Portal
The Daymap Parent Portal is an extension of the Daymap Learning Management System, that provides parents with access to key school and student information, both at home and on the go. It’s an easy-to-use system which allows parents to create and manage their own accounts for Daymap Connect, requiring only one login and password per parent (with the option to provide multiple logins) to access details for all of your children enrolled in the school.
Bring Your Own Device Program
Our students are living in a world where they have immediate access to information anytime and anywhere. Many students have personally owned devices that can be used to allow them to learn in their own style and at their own pace.
Gawler & District College recognises that when students feel connected to their device they are more likely to use it responsibly to access and process information which will improve their overall learning. We believe our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative is a sustainable way for the school to make it possible for every child to have access to an ICT device.
If the devices the students use beyond the school day are the same ones they use for school, the student can seamlessly switch from personal use to learning anytime, anywhere. The resources for learning are accessible to the students 24/7, enabling them to pursue personal interests associated with such learning.
Please download the Bring Your Own Device Agreement for more information, it also includes the application form.
Learnlink Office 365
Our school will be expanding the current email service offered to students with additional services, and this will be known as LearnLink Office 365.
LearnLink Office 365 is a customised package of Microsoft Office 365, tailored for the South Australian public education system, and is offered at no additional charge to parents/guardians whilst their student remains enrolled at Gawler & District College.
When LearnLink Office 365 is enabled, families of students attending Gawler & District College (GDC) will be able to use the service online. Also, via their home Internet service, they will be able to download licenced versions of common Microsoft Office applications used in teaching and learning for no charge, and use them after installation without an internet connection. They will also have their own online storage space for files that can be shared with other students and teachers.
A letter with more information will be coming home to parents/caregivers shortly. You can also download this letter via the link on this page.
