BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

During 2016 West Eyreton School will be trialling an optional Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programme. Parents with students in the trial classes will be invited to participate. The trial classes are: Rooms 5, 6, 7 & 8.

Involvement in this programme is completely optional. No student will be disadvantaged by not bringing a digital device. West Eyreton School provides modern digital devices to which all students have shared access. The BYOD programme is not requiring families to buy devices. However, for parents with year 8 students who are contemplating a purchase we suggest you investigate the devices recommended by the high school your child will be attending.

Why trial BYOD?

Experience from schools around the world strongly suggest that a BYOD programme can enhance students’:

  • participation in learning and working together (connectedness);

  • driving their own learning (agency);

  • moving learning beyond the classroom (ubiquity);

  • adapting to new ways of learning (agency).
