Student Laptop Requirements

Underdale High School has a vision for using innovative technologies in the teaching and learning programs of the school. We aim to promote engaging and interactive curriculum delivery and assessment which improve the educational outcomes for all students. The key aim of the integration of technology into the teaching and learning at Underdale High School is to ensure that all students can become competent, discriminating, and creative users of a range of technologies.

The focus on the use of technologies in the teaching and learning program means that it is necessary to establish appropriate policies and procedures. Whilst this focus provides opportunities to enhance and extend human interaction, empathy and understanding, students must be aware of the responsibilities of using information and communication technologies. Therefore, it is a requirement that all students and their caregivers read and abide by the school’s Learning Technologies User Rights and Responsibilities Agreement.

This policy provides direction to staff, students and parents/caregivers on procedures, responsibilities, and expectations regarding the Digital Learning Program.
