BYOD - BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE
The inclusion of digital technologies learning was introduced in 2018 to all students from Year 1 to Year 13. This change ensures that all students get these experiences, to prepare them for a world where digital skills are increasingly valuable to the economy and wider society.
Whilst we have devices available at school to support this curriculum area, you may want to purchase a device for your child to bring to school. This would allow your child....
- to get used to how the device works so logging on and accessing work will be quicker
- to favourite, most often used websites on their own device
- to learn to take responsibility for a valuable item
- to easily continue with work at home
Below are some flyers (click on the link to get the latest deals) from Noel Leeming which are updated regularly. The Papakura branch are very supportive of our school. We use chromebooks at school but providing your child knows how to 'drive' their device and is able to log into their school gmail account then we do not specify a particular device. We do, however, recommend that the device is able to access a full keyboard.
All parents are required to sign the BYOD procedures form (below) before a child is allowed to bring their own device to school. This is an annual requirement.
