  • Integrated Catholic Online Network (ICON)

    ICON Project Team 

    The Integrated Catholic Online Network (ICON) project is a collaborative project between Victorian Catholic schools and the four Victorian Catholic Education Offices in the Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Diocese of Ballarat, Sale and Sandhurst.

    ICON vision

    ICON will provide core technologies for Victorian Catholic education. It will provide tools to foster rich and deep student learning powered by Catholic educators collaborating, pooling learning resources and optimising student learning outcomes over time. ICON will also provide system-wide technology to optimise school administration.

    ICON builds on the Catholic tradition of working together to improve all schools by facilitating collaboration, the pooling of resources, and strategies to improve student learning across Victorian Catholic education to capitalise on and enhance the collective wisdom of Catholic educators and administrators.

    ICON implementation for schools

    ICON will be accessible through a customised portal for staff, teachers, students and parents, and will include a range of features for each group. The three main components that make up ICON are eAdmin, eLearn and ePlan.

    The ICON team will support the development and implementation of ICON for schools. The rollout of the ICON platform is scheduled s a series of four product releases.

    The first release of the ICON platform is being implemented progressively to eight primary schools throughout Term 4, 2016. St Joseph’s Primary School, Boronia, St John Vianney’s School, Mulgrave and Emmaus Catholic Primary School, Sydenham are the first three schools to successfully migrate to the ICON platform. School staff are now using the eAdmin applications to process payroll, pay accounts and manage student details.

    ICON components

    eAdmin will provide all Catholic schools in Victoria with a streamlined and efficient way to manage human resources, finances and interactions with parents. eAdmin will be used by all Catholic schools making it easy for records and information to follow a student when they change schools.

    eLearn will provide teachers and students with access to a streamlined, efficient and integrated suite of collaboration tools and learning resources that will support and enable high-quality learning and teaching. 

    eLearn will support the development of communities of learning and practice with Google Apps for Education (G Suite). Student collaboration with peers and teachers will be enhanced for both local and global communities. Teachers will be able to easily collaborate online with other teachers in their school, from other Catholic schools in their area and across the whole Victorian Catholic system.

    ePlan will provide easy-to-use business intelligence reporting for Victorian Catholic schools, with a particular focus on supporting the work of classroom teachers, ‘middle’ leaders with curriculum and student support roles, and school leaders.

    ePlan will help school leaders and teachers to work with families to support the full flourishing of each student.
