Digital resources are helping teachers at a Sydney high school improve educational outcomes for multicultural students and provide round-the-clock learning opportunities. Arthur Phillip High School in Parramatta is a melting pot of cultures, with 56 nationalities represented including Iraq, Germany, South Korea, Egypt, Afghanistan and India. More than 90 per cent of its students are from non-English speaking backgrounds   Principal Lynne Goodwin says a revolution is taking place – a digital learning revolution, triggered by the nationwide laptop rollout. She explains: “We’re meeting the children where they’re at [academically] and trying to provide a learning environment that is really 24/7. We’re watching students really carefully, seeing how they like to learn and then we’re trying to adapt how we work with them.”
