Stawell Secondary College Council has resolved that every student of the school will have access to a portable computer full time from the start of next year. Following the successful introduction and continuance of notebook computers leased by year 10 and 11 students over the past two years, all students in years seven to nine will be loaned a ‘netbook’ computer for their exclusive use at school and at home. These compact and highly portable devices are fully functional computers which will be preloaded with a comprehensive suite of educational software known as eduSTAR, which has been specifically developed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development for Victorian schools. The netbooks will access an enhanced school network as well as the DEECD’s Ultranet, and can log on to the internet and Ultranet from home or other wireless access points.
