Computer network and internet

The Australian Curriculum requires Australian students to be taught Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills, and the Directorate considers ICT important to the delivery of a high-quality education. As such, students of ACT Government schools are taught with, taught to use, and learn while using ICT. The Directorate provides students with safe and secure access to a range of ICT tools and services including the SchoolsNET network, the Internet, Google Suite for Education and Microsoft Office 365. Some services require some personally identifiable student information to be stored outside of the Directorate to provide the service, such as first name, last name, and school attended to create a Google or Microsoft account. These accounts cannot be created without this information and without these accounts we are unable to effectively deliver the Australian Curriculum to this student. Work created by students and teachers is created and stored on Microsoft and Google products that form part of the Directorate's ICT tools and services. The ACT's Territory Privacy Principles (TPPs) contain information on: how you may access this student's personal information that the Directorate holds; and how you may complain about a breach of the TPPs, or any TPP code that binds the Directorate, as well as how the Directorate will deal with a complaint.
Under the TPPs, we are required to inform you that some third parties - including Google and Microsoft - that the Directorate provides this information to are overseas recipients, primarily located in the United States of America.

Technology Enabled Learning

The ACT Government has made a commitment that access to technology for learning will not be an educational barrier in the ACT. The Directorate meets this commitment through our Technology Enabled Learning program, which: ensures a 1 to 3 device to student ratio (one device for every three students) in ACT Government primary schools; offers a loaned device to all year 7 - 12 students to facilitate their learning.
Personal Electronic Devices
Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) are devices including - but not limited to - laptops, tablets, and smartphones owned by students or provided to students by their parents and carers that students bring to school to facilitate their learning. Further information about the use of PEDs by students is available in the Technology Enabled Learning: Personal Electronic Devices - Parents and carers policy.
As you are enrolling your child in years 7 - 12 you may either
Prior to finalising your acceptance of the device loan for your child, you are required to read the Use of Personal Electronic Devices policy. Students who receive a device loan may also use PEDs to enhance their education.
Prior to finalising your decision to provide a PED for your child, you are required to read the Use of Personal Electronic Devices policy. Students who use a PED instead of receiving a loaned device may use additional PEDs to enhance their education, and must have at least one PED that meets the following minimum requirements: has a minimum screen size of 9.7 inches; has an external keyboard; has a trackpad or external mouse; holds enough battery charge to allow sustained use for an entire school day (note that wireless peripherals such as mouse and keyboard are also subject to this battery charge requirement); can connect to the SchoolsNET wireless network; and can run a modern internet browser.
Further information about the minimum PED requirements is available in the Use of Personal Electronic Devices policy.
