The 3G service provides users with a department-filtered internet connection, enabling anywhere, any time learning.
The service allows users to access the internet while in meetings, on school camps, at professional development sessions and at home. It also provides backup access to departmental resources, including OneSchool, in the event of a school network failure.
Principals 3G-embedded laptops
During Term 4 2010, the Computers for Teachers team rolled out 3G embedded wireless laptops technology to all Queensland state school principals.
The major benefits of this new technology include increased connectivity, reliability and mobility to access online resources such as OneSchool and the Learning Place.
This means Principals will be able to access the department's network 24/7 from home, out-of-school, during professional development or when travelling.
It will also ensure schools have at least one laptop on-site that can connect to department's network in the event that the school server, internet connection or the DETE network experiences an outage.
The 3G embedded wireless network is a content filtered service.
Principals are reminded the use of this new technology is in accordance with the Acceptable Use of the Department's Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Network and Systems and all other policies.
