Our school is committed to moving students and staff forward in a contemporary learning environment. BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. This program allows students to bring an iPad to school to support their learning.
In 2020 we will be recommending all students from year 4 upwards to provide an iPad for daily use in classrooms. Students in lower year levels will also be able to bring an iPad if parents choose. These devices can significantly improve student learning and also provide more opportunities for students to develop their skills in information and communication technology.
iPads are a powerful means of differentiation and personalising a student's education. Student-owned devices facilitate student choice over which tool best suits their learning and communication style.
The BYOD program will strive to ensure students at Elanora State School are provided the very best educational opportunities to match their counterparts in other states and countries and prepare our senior students for high school. By supporting students to become responsible digital citizens, we enhance classroom learning and skills that will prepare them for their future studies and careers.
The following devices are acceptable for students, however may not be updated to new operating systems releases in to the future:
iPad 6th Generation with minimum of 32gb storage
The following add-ons are required for all students:
Keyboard (usually a part of the case)
Glass screen protector
Warranty and/or Accidental Damage Protection
Please note the following information:
The iPad mini does not meet the requirements and specifications for a device at Elanora State School . It does not support teaching and learning needs and is not compatible with Naplan Online.
We do not recommend the purchase of a cellular enabled device. A Wi-Fi only model will reduce the cost of the device significantly without compromising the student's ability to complete school tasks. Students are required to access the internet and resources through the school's Wi-Fi network only while at school. Use of cellular data while at school is in breach of the school's Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students.
