​​​What is the TIC Program of Excellence?

The Technology Integrated Curriculum (TIC) program is designed for students who are passionate about using technology to enable their learning. In an innovative environment students complete Australian curriculum subjects through teaching and learning experiences that are especially designed to embed and draw upon the power of technology.

This is a one-to-one program that utilises the power of Apple's iPad Pro and Apple's educational systems to enrich and extend students' learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Goals of the Program are to:

  • Provide an innovative learning environment.
  • Learning through carefully designed technology tasks that are purposefully selected, integrated and deployed.
  • Develop proficiency in a range of real-world technologies, enabling students to become more effective learners as they progress into their senior and tertiary studies.

Duration

TIC is a 3-year program. Successful applications will remain in this program until the end of Year 9.

Subjects

TIC is a program of two classes with a total of 56 students who will study:

  • English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities
  • Either Japanese or French as their language elective for a semester with HPE for the alternative semester
  • Digital Technologies as their Technology elective and choose an Art elective for the alternative semester

One-to-one iPad Pro program

Students in TIC participate in an exclusive one-to-one iPad Pro program. This program provides students with a device through a Corporate-Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) scheme that is specifically designed for the purpose and needs of the students’ TIC classes.

TIC students are NOT included in the mainstream BYOD and CYOD programs. They will not require a laptop.

Like the school's CYOD program, each student's iPad Pro package is purchased through the school (please see the iPad Pro program guide for more information).

On this page you will find a number of important documents that have been developed for parents and students of Mansfield State High School’s technology excellence program. These forms include the:

​Who can apply?

The TIC program is available to both local area catchment and out-of-catchment students. Students interested in applying for entry into this Program of Excellence must indicate this option on their enrolment application to be considered.

Application process​

The entry point for TIC is Year 7. Students wishing to complete an application for this program will complete an enrolment application including the Program of Excellence forms part 1 and part 2.  Applications for entry in 2023 close on Friday 27 May 2022.

​How are students selected?

Students are selected on the merits and strength of their application data as requested in the application and enrolment process. The school makes decisions based on our interpretations of the submitted data to select the students who present as being the most suitable for this program. The top 56 applicants will be offered positions on the program. If an offer is turned down, the position is offered to the next person on the waiting list (i.e. 57th best applicant) until both classes are filled.
