School Devices Program


Our School Devices Program

“Technologies that facilitate the co-creation of knowledge or those that encourage self-discovery and personalised learning opportunities are especially valuable in providing stimulation and creativity to all learners. Using these, students and teachers can access new knowledge, communicate with experts outside the College and tap into resources across geographical boundaries, as well as collaborate with parents and the local community.”

Our school has heavily invested in our school network at both campuses (Derrimut and Tarneit) with hardware, software, teaching tools, interactive panels, and digital technologies program to support the new Victorian Curriculum model. Digital technologies are catered for at both campuses with a variety of devices that correlate with our school curriculum, also our school infrastructure of a multicampus allows students to collaborate with digital learning and media streaming across both campuses.  

 

Information Resource Centre (IRC) plays an integral part of Baden Powell's information hub as our central communications point in which both campuses have an extensive catalog of books, e-books, cameras, video production equipment, drones, iPads, computer labs, media equipment (professional media systems used as an industry standard) and a wide array of Wireless Access Points (WAPs) in all rooms and open areas.

Baden Powell has partnered with Centrecom Technologies to offer parents an affordable option for a student notebook to accommodate with your child’s learning and progression onto senior education. It is vital that Parents take up on our school devices program to enhance and further develop your student's skills onto the progression of senior studies.
