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.

My child is in Prep in 2020:

  • Prep students have access to a bank of iPads available in their classroom.

 

My child is in Grades 1 to 4 in 2020:

  • Students in grades 1 to 4 will have a class set of computers (1:5 ratio) that the school will provide for school learning for students who choose not to take up this option.

 

My child is in Year 5 or 6 in 2020:

  • Students in Grades 5 & 6 are strongly encouraged to purchase a device to support their learning at the College and at home. If families choose to take up this option, Centrecom is the ONLY PROVIDER supported by the College. 
  • Teachers will have access to devices, which can be booked for use to provide learning activities that use ICT.
  • Teachers will provide opportunities for students to use their devices in-class time.

 

My child is in Year 7 to 9 in 2020:

  • Students in Years 7-9 are advised that a device is essential to support learning. Families are advised that Centrecom is the ONLY PROVIDER supported by the College.
  • The College will enable some devices to be leased by students who haven’t purchased one for learning at school only. This is subject to availability and College resources. It is most likely this will be available to Year 8 and 9 students in the 2020 school year.
