Redlands College is pleased to announce that we have again been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2016 to 2017.  Apple has recognised us for our endeavours to improve learning through the integration of digital technologies, specifically iPads.  Redlands College has held this prestigious title since Apple re-introduced Apple Distinguished Schools to Australia in 2011.

The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, while also demonstrating Apple’s vision of exemplary learning environments. Redlands College joins a small, select group of educational institutions that Apple has accredited.

At Redlands College, we strive to help our students discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents, and we use digital technologies as a tool to support this endeavour. As we seek to prepare our students for their emerging future, we use innovative future-facing technology to support our teaching and learning. iPads are available for use by all students and teachers in all learning contexts.  They are complemented by specialist technologies for specialist subjects and supported with strong cloud-based solutions.

Our journey of discovery with iPads in learning continues to be a rewarding one and a number of our teachers have implemented genuine innovations focussed on student learning. As a learning community, there are many more exciting innovations to discover and explore.

Mark Bensley, Principal
