Success in learning is achieved through the use of a range of strategies and in the twenty first century learning environment, effective use of technology is a key factor in achieving that success. Students at Kariong Mountains High School undertake a dedicated technology course in Stage 4, designed to provide them with the foundation skills required in all KLAs throughout their schooling career. Additionally, this course delivers information on cyber safety and netiquette.

Use of technology is commonplace in all KLAs; students have access to laptops, iPads and PC computer labs. Students may also bring their own devices according to the BYOD policy.
