Dungog High School recognises the importance of equipping students with the technology skills they need to be sucessful in the future.
The facilities in our library have been designed to provide a future-focused learning environment integrating advanced technology and encouraging a high level of student collaboration and creativity. Students have access to a bank of laptops which can be used in any of the 5 learning zones.
Three dedicated computer labs are situated across the school where students have access to a wide variety of software. Classes also have access to our Computers on Wheels (COW), portable units containing class sets of laptops which can be used anywhere in the school.
When students open an internet browser on school computers, our Student Links Page opens in a second tab. Students can also access this page on BYOD devices or home computers by visiting student links.
Bring your own device (BYOD)
Students, particularly senior students, are encouraged to bring their own laptop to school for learning purposes. Students can connect their personal devices to the school's wifi and can also access printing if required. Before purchasing a device please refer to our BYOD hardware checklist. Our HP BYOD portal offers a range of suitable devices, favourable warranty and payment options.
All students in NSW public schools have free access to online learning tools including Microsoft Office 365 and GSuite which can be accessed through their student portal. Students can also download the Microsoft Office suite of apps onto their personal laptop or computer by following the link on their Office 365 Dashboard. Instructions can be found here.
Students also have free access to industry standard design software through Adobe Creative Cloud, a suite of apps including Photoshop and Illustrator which enable students to design anything from posters to websites. These apps can be downloaded from a link in the 'Learning' section of the Student Portal. Students sign in with their school email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students can talk to the library staff for assistance.
