1:1 Laptop Program

Bendigo South East College incorporates a 1 to 1 ICT program. Parents/guardians make an annual contribution toward the overall cost of the program. Students have the option to buy-out the device at the end of Year 10 (pending College Council review each year).

As technology exponentially infiltrates our society, students will need to acquire and apply the basics of what technology provides in authentic, integrated ways to solve problems, complete projects and creatively extend their abilities.

The computer is an essential part of a learner’s toolkit and BSE acknowledges that digital literacies play a major role in students’ social and academic development. 1 to 1 technology will support students to practise and acquire foundational 21st century skills, knowledge and attributes.

What do I get for my contribution to the laptop program?

As we enter deeper into the digital age, providing our students with a device capable of supporting their learning goals is very important, be they budding artists wanting to make full use of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, creating stunning works in Photoshop or Premier, or simply a workhorse that will not let them down when they need it, the BSE 1-to-1 device program is designed to provide students with a device that supports learning and growth for the entire time they are at the college.

Perhaps the most notable benefit to our families is the piece of mind we can offer, the school’s IT department takes care of all warranty, Accidental Damage and support for your student’s device.

As the school can order devices for a large cohort, we have access to special pricing, which is not available to the general public.

It is only by the ongoing support of our community that this program has been able to continue.
