Technology is a new Key Learning Area. Technology involves envisioning and developing products to meet human needs and wants, capitalise on opportunities and extend human capabilities.  Products of Technology include artefacts, processes, systems, services and environments.  These products make up the designed world.  Products of technology have impacts and consequences on individuals, local and global, communities and environment.  Technology also encompasses Information Computer Technology.

Information computer learning technology (ICLT) is an integral part of teaching and learning at St. Benedict's.  We endeavour to give each child the opportunity to develop appropriate skills, to prepare them for a society where ICLT is present in every facet of life.
