As leaders in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) education Essendon Keilor College aims to prepare all students for life-long learning in today’s technology reliant society.  This learning will occur in a context that promotes positive and safe experiences in the use of ICT.

 

Essendon Keilor College is committed to using technology in the classroom with the aim that every student will have a device to access our modern curriculum. To achieve this aim the College began its ‘Get Connected’ Bring Your Own Device Program (BYOD) in 2017.  I congratulate students and teachers who are now making their computers a tool to be used every day. Student access to their own computer allows teachers to provide a more engaging curriculum and opportunities to tailor the programs to each student’s needs. 

 

Students will bring their own computer device from home. Essendon Keilor College has selected computers in the Lenovo range that will meet the needs of students. Our preferred supplier will be JB Hi Fi Education Solutions who will offer computers, insurance and provide a warranty service. Parents will be able to purchase the computer through a JB HiFi portal specifically designed for the College. The portal will provide information regarding payment options and insurance.  The device is fully owned by the family and is not managed in any way by the school.

 

Once a computer is purchased, students will have access to software provided by the Department of Education and Training (DET).  Anti-virus/security software is also provided.  When at school, students will be able to connect to the network to enable access to internet services including Edmodo, Compass School Manager and Infiniti (for Library services).  

 

The College preference is that all students have the same brand of computer as this will allow staff to support all students similarly. However, some families may already have a device they feel is suitable for their child.  The minimum specifications for any other device would be a Windows device with at least Windows 8.0 or above. The device should be less than three years old and have more than 4GB RAM to cope with the software.

 

The JB Hi Fi Education Solutions portal can be accessed at www.jbeducation.com.au/BYOD

The access code is EKC2018
