SCHOOL LAPTOP PROGRAM
At Dromana College we offer a successful 1:1 Laptop program for our Students. All students throughout the school will need to have a computer as a tool for learning. Our aim is to make this as easy as possible for existing families as well as new families entering the school.
This program offers the opportunity for parents to choose BYOD (Bring your Own Device from Home) or to order through our Laptop Purchase Portal organised by Technology Company EduNET.
Currently, our preferred device is:
- Lenovo Yoga 11e (Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD). Please CLICK HERE for the specification sheet for this device.
The Lenovo Yoga 11e has been our staple student device for the last 3 years. It has a touch screen and is sufficient for all areas of student learning across our College.
Parents may decide to purchase a computer through an outside supplier or bring a device they may already own. If this is the case, families must note the following:
- Minimum Specifications (Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD running Windows 10 or Apple MacOS 10.13+)
- The College Technicians can fix Software related issues (Viruses, Problematic Software) with these devices.
- The College Technicians cannot fix any hardware related issues, they need to be logged with the manufacturer.
- Software is available through the School’s Technology Portal for installation onto these devices.
WARRANTY AND INSURANCE
To ensure successful use of Technology in the College we have ensured that all Laptop purchases through our Portal are covered with 3 years of Warranty and Insurance. If purchased in Year 7, this will cover the device until the start of Year 10. A $50 excess is applied to any Insurance requests and this will cover accidental damage to the device.
