  1. 1. Year 9 Laptop Rollout 2011<br />Digital Education Revolution<br />
  2. 2. Welcome to the Revolution<br />
  3. 3. The User Charter<br />This is an agreement that students have read and understood their responsibilities.<br />The charter must also be signed by parents or carers. <br />The charter includes a commitment to take the laptop home each day and bring it back to school the next day fully charged. <br />
  4. 4. The User Charter<br />Failure to follow the rules of the User Charter may mean the laptop must be returned to school.<br />Students will then only have on-site access to their laptop – they will pick it up from and drop it off to the TSO’s office every day until they can prove they are deserving of full access once more.<br />
  5. 5. Technical Support<br />The DER program is committed to providing a full time Technology Support Officer (TSO) to our school.<br />At Richmond HS our TSO is Mr Sam Don and his office is located in the library.<br />
  6. 6. Wireless Connectivity<br />The laptops are wireless enabled, which means they can be used to connect to the internet in the library, the playground and in the classroom.<br />
  7. 7. Internet Safety<br />Your child can't access unauthorised internet content. The Department of Education filters are applied to the laptop at school and home.<br />Your child can also use their school laptop to access the web safely from home if you have an internet connection at home.<br />
  8. 8. Connecting at Home<br />At home, students can connect to the Internet wirelessly or via ‘internet cable’.<br />The laptops will not connect to mobile wireless dongles as they won’t install the software to run them.<br />
  9. 9. Built-In Security<br />The laptops will be remotely monitored and managed wherever they are. What's more, a stolen laptop can be disabled and the thieves tracked and prosecuted. These safety measures protect your child by removing any incentive for theft.<br />
  10. 10. Moving around<br />Treat the laptop like you would your wallet. Don't leave it lying around. <br />Carry the laptop inside your school bag when travelling to and from school. Avoid using it in public.<br />Be sure nothing is stacked or thrown on top of the laptop.<br />Tell the school immediately if the laptop needs repairs, or is stolen, lost or damaged.<br />
  11. 11. Using your laptop<br />Don't drop the laptop, get it wet, or leave it outdoors. Avoid using it with food or drink.<br />Put the laptop on a solid surface if you are using it for a long time. Resting it on a pillow or other soft material might block the airflow vents and cause it to overheat.<br />Take care not to leave anything, like a pen, between the screen and the keyboard when closing the laptop.<br />
  12. 12. Back It Up<br />Students should back up the important information on their laptop regularly and/or when they take their laptop to the TSO.<br />Data can be backed up to a small USB storage device or a larger external hard drive.<br />
  13. 13. Regular Updates<br />From time to time laptops will need to be returned to the TSO for updates. <br />These updates may take place in a few days or even over holiday breaks.<br />
  14. 14. Remember: recharge!<br />Recharge the battery each night. While charging, place it on a hard surface like the dining table or kitchen bench. Don't charge it near water.<br />When using or charging the laptop, it's normal for the bottom of the case to get warm.<br />Take care with the charger. Don't step on or yank the cord.<br />Unplug the laptop if there's an electrical storm.<br />
  15. 15. Hardware<br />
  16. 16. More Hardware<br />
  17. 17. Software<br />There is more than $5,000 of software included with the laptop.<br />Windows 7 Operating Software<br />Microsoft Office 2010<br />Adobe CS5 Suite<br />Internet Explorer 8<br />Apple iTunes<br />
