One-to-One Netbook Program
In recent years Pakenham Secondary College has implemented a One-to-One Netbook Program. The netbook program has been embraced by students and staff. We believe they are a tool that our students need if we are to prepare them appropriately for the 21st century.
This year we will be using a preferred supplier, Edunet Technology. This company will provide the option of an upfront payment or a payment plan, with optional accidental protection insurance (ADP) and in-school repairs.
All computers will be configured by the Education Department with the Department's School Technology Architecture and Resources (eduSTAR) standard platform software for free.
The eduSTAR program provides over 120 software applications covering animation, image creation, drawing, interactive curriculum resources, logic and more applications.
While the student has ownership of the computer, the College maintains ownership of the eduSTAR suite of programs on the Netbook.
