Prescott College understands the importance of helping students use technology in rich and wholesome ways. We use computers as useful tools in many areas of our lives, and are keen for this to be the case in a student’s learning as well. Prescott College is providing a sustainable way for families to purchase a laptop for their child to use at school and at home.
Before a Laptop Program can Work
The benefit of a laptop program does not become realizable unless the school first has a strong network infrastructure. This is because much of the educational work using computers is interactive and depends on being connected to resources (such as on-line interactive learning products) and to people (such as other students and teachers). Prescott College has strong network infrastructure – capable servers, a commercial grade wireless network, a quality software range, and much more.
