Cranbourne West Secondary College runs a 1 to 1 Chromebook Program.
All students that attend the College are to participate in this program. This program is a cost effective and sustainable program to ensure our students can achieve excellence.
The 1 to 1 Chromebook Program is an important element in individualising learning.
The device provides students with a personal, portable computer to enhance the opportunities for learning. Chromebooks help the school to engage the generation of ‘digital kids’ by nurturing individual learning experiences. With all students participating in this program, each student will be provided their own device, which we expect them to take responsibility for, including taking this home after school, charging the device at home and taking it to all classes. Parents/Guardians will be responsible for appropriate use outside school hours.
Information about upgrading devices for the second phase of the program will be emailed to families of students in Year 9 during Semester 2. The process of purchasing the new device will be organised well-before the end of the school year to avoid any supplier delays over the summer break. This helps ensure a smooth start to the beginning of the academic year.
