Leading the nation with digital backpacks

Teacher and students on laptops

Canberra school students are benefiting from a new learning platform that offers anytime, anywhere access to Google Apps for education, Microsoft Office 365,& e-books and audio books.

This new learning platform is cloud-based and delivered through our learn anywhere‘Digital Backpack’ program. It supports students in partnership with their parents, to develop the skills needed for their future success in the workforce and as digital citizens.

The program promotes a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ environment at schools as well as personalised learning for each student, including measures to assist with access to devices for those that require it. Currently, 31,000 students across 77 schools have adopted the service, which is the fastest digital schools education network in the country.
