Moreton Bay College has a strong ICT program from Prep through to Year 12 and Information Technology (together with Food and Textile Technology) forms one of the nine MBC Learning Areas and is a core part of the curriculum 1-10. Primary students can access computers within their classrooms or in their own computer laboratory. Students in Years 5, 6 and 7 have access to specially created cluster rooms of eight PCs adjacent to their classrooms. Secondary students have the use of six computer laboratories and an electronic learning centre attached to the library. As well, key department areas have the use of clusters of PCs within their own block. In 2011 Year 8 and 9 students have received a notebook computer to use at school and this 1-to-1 program will be progressively rolled out so that it finally encompasses Years 4 to 12.
Throughout the College information and communication technology skills are being taught across the curriculum in all subject areas. Word processing, e-mail, using digital and on-line resources, digital imaging and the use of Microsoft PowerPoint for oral presentations are essential IT skills being used daily by our students.
