Supporting ICT for Learning

We have prepared for ICT for Learning with site-wide wireless, improved internet access speeds and a comprehensive firewall system to monitor and filter usage.

Student Device Care and Security

It is important that students take responsibility for their own equipment, naming their device and case, handling it carefully and storing it securely when not in use.

Care and Security of Personal Devices

Mis-handling portable devices is the largest cause of problems. Most devices will come with care guidelines which we advise users to read. The following are conditions that we recommend.

  • Portable devices should be protected by a username and password. This should not be disclosed to other students.
  • Always store the Portable Computers in the protective bag
  • Avoid storing it at the bottom of your school bag – pressure from books can damage the screen and hinges
  • Do not store anything additional to the Portable Computers within the Portable Computer’s sleeve (e.g. cords, papers or disks), as this may damage the screen
  • Carry your Portable Computer within its protective cover inside your normal school bag. Do not overfill your school bag. (Pressure on the Portable Computer can cause permanent damage to the screen and other components)
  • Never lift the Portable Computer by the screen. This will stress the hinge mechanism, which also carries the power supply to the screen.
  • Never leave your Portable Computer in a car or in an exposed area where it can be stolen
  • Never leave your Portable Computer in unsupervised areas during the school day.

Security of devices while at school

The security of a student-owned device is the responsibility of the student. Students can use the Rosmini device lockers that are available.

Warranty and Insurance

Most devices come with a one year warranty. A three-year warranty is sometimes available. Insurance should be covered by the owner of the device—some resellers offer special insurance for theft, damage and loss.

Virus Protection

Ensure that the virus protection on portable devices is kept up to date.

Saving and Backup

Students are responsible for their own backup of critical data at all times. This may be through a USB, SD card, external drive, or ‘cloud’-based backup to regularly backup important work. We strongly recommend the use of cloud storage as an additional level of backup and using the google platform as it backs up to the Cloud.

Keeping safe online

Rosmini College believes open communication between parents, teachers and students is the best way to keep students safe. The year 7 & 8 Digital Technology programme will educate students about cyber-safety and digital citizenship. It is important that students tell a teacher and/or parent/caregiver when they are feeling uncomfortable or threatened online.

Note: All  students’ passwords will be created through KAMAR in 2022. They will receive the generic password from New Era. From here, they can change to their individual password.
