The Beacon School project is not about technology. It’s about developing 21st-century skills, such as collaboration, communication, personal/social, critical, and creative thinking skills essential for success in the knowledge economy. It’s about supporting young people by giving them the opportunity to develop skills that foster innovation from which individuals, communities, and countries can thrive.
Transforming education is more than new devices. It’s rethinking the classroom as being real world and socially connected, where learning can take place anywhere, anytime.
The Beacon School project is designed to deliver world-class, next-generation learning environments for teachers and students. Through a multi-year, whole-of-school journey, 21st-century skills are embedded in the curriculum and brought to life through innovative practices.
Datacom and our partners, including Google, equip students and teachers with the tools and skills they need for the future of work. We work to bring everyone on the journey, including the school leadership council, teachers, staff, students, and the parent community.
The Beacon School project rewards schools with:
- Highly sought-after Google reference status in the education sector
- Significant upgrades to your school’s IT environment
- World-leading professional development programmes for teachers.
