Bring Your Own Device BYOD

Bring Your Own Device BYOD

What is BYOD

 

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a strategy whereby students will be able to bring a familiar personal device to school to use as their primary technological device. The school will provide the ability to connect compatible devices to a filtered internet service.

Warrawong High School recognises the need to prepare students for a rapidly changing world where technology plays an increasing role in students' everyday lives. All students are asked to bring their own devices to school.

Based on data from student surveys, parent surveys and student focus groups, Warrawong High School has chosen an open BYOD model that brings many benefits to student learning.

For more information see DEC - BYOD Policy.

What devices can students bring to school?

While students and their families are free to choose a device that best suits them it is recommended that they meet the features listed below. Parents should also bear in mind that students in years 10 to 12 will require more advanced devices.
