WHAT IS THE UNLIMITED SUPPORT PROGRAM?
The Unlimited Support Program is an online community designed to support and train teachers in the best way to use technology.
The community is a place for you to come and access training and resources, get your questions answered and collaborate with other teachers....when it suits your schedule.
WHO IS THE UNLIMITED SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR?
A Place For Teachers:
This community is the ideal place for primary, secondary and tertiary teachers who want to use technology better and increase the engagement and motivation of their students.
If you are new to using technology, or would consider yourself to be comfortable using technology in the classroom, you will benefit from our team of experts as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other like minded educators.
A Place For Students:
Schools can elect to enrol some of their students into a specially designed community. We are passionate about equipping and empowering students to provide meaningful help and training within their local schools.
Students can share resources, ideas and ask questions of their peers.
Teachers can easily share posts into the student and teacher community simultaneously with one click of a button.
We have designed the community for students so that:
- Students younger than 13 have access to one area, whereas students older than 13 have access to another
- Teachers can monitor all student activity and have edit rights over their students posts.
- Students can only see the content shared within their community, they cannot gain access to the staff community.

I would just like to say a big thank-you for yesterday PD day. I found it a very beneficial and worth-while day.
Mike Reading was awesome. He made me think about some big picture questions we might need to work on but also gave me some great ideas to show teachers e.g. EasyBib
