1 to 1 Program

Our new 1 to 1 laptop program will provide our Year 7 and 10 students in 2018 with improved access to learning technologies, online learning and a collaborative learning environment, specifically through the use of Office 365 and the Google Education suite. 

 
The Laptop is used in classrooms as a companion device in conjunction with our existing technology. In 2018, all Year 7 and 10 students will be required to purchase a Laptop or utilise an already existing Laptop that meets our minimum requirements. Minimum requirements can be found in the Information Booklet below.
 
Implementation of our new Laptop program.
Over the next 3 years we will be rolling out our new laptop program so that by 2020 all students in the College will have a Laptop to enhance the learning program available to them. 
 
2018 – Year 7 and Year 10 students will require a laptop (Students in Year 8, 9, 11 and 12 are not required to bring a laptop)
 
2019 – Year 7, 8, 10 and 11 students will require a laptop (Students in Year 9 and 12 are not required to bring a laptop)
 
2020 – All students will require a laptop
 
The current iPad program will continue for the next two years while we transition to the new laptop program. Students in Years 8 and 9 who have purchased an iPad are not required to purchase a laptop until they reach Year 10. If a students’ iPad breaks, however, they can purchase a laptop instead of an iPad in preparation for Year 10. Our teachers are altering our learning program so no students in the transitioning iPad program who don’t have an iPad will be disadvantaged.
 
In 2018 we are partnering with Learning with Technologies who are providing a portal to purchase recommended devices. To see the available laptops to purchase, please visit the following site: http://www.brentwoodsc.orderportal.com.au
