Edmund Rice students have access to the latest software technologies including Adobe Suite, Sketchup, Revit, Microsoft Office, and Google Applications.
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.
Thank you Parents/Carers for supporting our Laptop program at Edmund Rice College. The following document provides information about software, network connection and setup.
Device and Operating System (OS) Requirements
Students from Year 7 in 2023 will be required to use an Apple Laptop. The minimum requirement is that the device is able to use MacOS Version 12 (MacOS Monterey).
https://www.educomit.com.au/erc/ is a custom made portal for Edmund Rice College parents which offers Apple Laptops at a competitive price. We do encourage parents/carers to consider the AppleCare+, which offers a 3 year warranty coverage.
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.
