BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has been an option for Year 11 & 12 students for a few years now, where they are allowed to bring their own laptops to classes and are connected to the school’s WiFi network. In 2020 we are developing the use of technology, including ensuring that the investment in learning with the Canvas Learning Management System can be accessed by all students in Year 10. After a great deal of thought, prayer and discussion, we have made the decision to introduce BYOD as compulsory for all Year 10 Students in 2020. Laptop devices can be obtained at a reasonable price through several business such The School Locker and can often be paid off over three years.
ICT is an important significant aspect of the College’s strategic plan and the College has invested heavily to support this vision. The BYOD model is in parallel with the strategic and operational developments of a College-wide wireless network. The goal is to ensure that all students have access to unlimited opportunities to learn anytime and anywhere and that they have the tools that make this possible. It is anticipated that a Bring Your Own Device program will result in sustainable and meaningful change to teaching and learning in our College and to prepare students for further education and training, employment as well as equipping them to live and work in a dynamic digital world.
To communicate and further explain about this, we will be holding a parent information session immediately after the Parent-Teacher interviews at 7.00pm in Pioneer Hall, Wednesday 16th October. I especially encourage parents of current Year 9 students to attend to find out what BYOD means for you and your child.
