Bring Your Device Program
Edmund Rice College is a technology rich school that delivers innovation in the curriculum. We implemented a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program to improve and enhance the education experience of our students.
As part of our 1:1 Learning program, each student needs access to a technological device at school and at home. This enables communication and collaboration amongst peers and teachers. For Years 7 to 8, Google Chromebook laptops are compulsory. For Years 9 to 12, students bring a device of their own choice within College specifications.
The Information Technology (IT) Department will configure your son’s Chromebook to the school network and provide access to the necessary curriculum applications. All applications are pre-installed onto the device. Textbook files can be accessed from the College Google Site.
By giving students further options in Years 9 to 12, they develop a sense of responsibility and ownership for personalised learning. Edmund Rice College provides students with a choice to utilise their current Google Chromebook or use a Mac Laptop.
Safe Use of Technology
We educated students in responsible use of online technology. Our students and staff are expected to be accountable for the appropriate use of online education tools. Each year students sign and acknowledge College expectations when using technology for learning.
