Students in Year 5 in 2021 will participate in the BYOD program.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is being offered at Chapel Hill State School as a new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st century learning. It is a term used to describe a personally owned laptop or tablet that meets Chapel Hill State School’s minimum specifications and can be connected to the Department of Education and Training (DET) information and communication (ICT) network for teaching and learning. BYOD is an initiative that will allow students who have personal technology devices to bring them to school to use them for educational purposes to meet their learning needs, in a safe and secure manner as set out in school policies while under the direction of their classroom teacher.
The BYOD program is designed to help students keep up with the demands of the 21st century. Helping students become responsible digital citizens will enhance not only what we do in the classroom, but also give students skills and experiences that will prepare them for their future studies and career.
