All students at Westall Secondary College are required to bring their own computing device to school every day.
What is BYOD?
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), is a technological trend in schools and workplaces.
BYOD recognises that technology and choices about technology are very personal. The program acknowledges that technology in education means more than meeting specific curriculum requirements. It is also designed to give you, as students and families, freedom to make technology choices that suit your circumstances.
How does it work?
Students are expected to bring their own computing device to school every day. You can choose whatever device you would like to bring, as long as it meets the Westall Secondary College Device Specifications.
You are required to sign a User Agreement that sets out how the device can be used at school. The eLearning Coordinator and/or the ICT Team are available to answer questions and to provide assistance. However, it is important to note that the responsibility of caring for the device lies with the individual student and not the school.
