Technology is an integral part of learning in the 21st Century and provides a potentially powerful tool for learning. The Internet provides access to vast sums of human knowledge and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provides new capacities for collaboration, feedback and creativity in the learning community.
The College has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach for all students in Years 7 to 12. As such, your child is to bring their own personal device to school on the understanding that they will abide by the BYOD User Agreement attached. At all times students are to conduct themselves as responsible digital citizens and be directed in the use of their personal device by their classroom teacher.
Students will be given access to the Internet for research through the school server and have their own login to the College portal and email system.
Recognising the importance of choice, we are not recommending specific brands and models of personal devices, but do recommend minimum specifications (see PDF links below).
If you have questions or concerns in regards to BYOD, please contact the College. In adopting a BYOD approach we aim to further use ICT as a tool in providing quality learning for our students, facilitated by quality teaching.
Please note that all software required will be provided by the College. This includes the Microsoft Office Suite and the Adobe Creative Suite.
