Who put the “i” in iCentre?
The Nugent Complex Resource Centre at Our Lady of Dolours is known as the iCentre which houses the library book and resource collection, a computer centre and student and staff work areas.
The iCentre takes its name from the activities and ways of learning that are developing in association with the implementation of the Australian Curriculum and the continually evolving need for students to be independent and capable users of information and technology. School libraries are key centres for all things “I” – innovation, inspiration, inquiry, interest, information, investigation, invention, interpretation, integration, identification, improvement, inclusion, influence, intention, interaction, intrigue, ignition.
At OLD we use a range of iTools, and more, to “I” ourselves. We integrate iMacs and iPads, iBooks and iView. At OLD we can all say: iRead, iThink, iSolve, iAim, iReason and iHave Fun!
