BYOD - Bring Your Own Device
BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device and is something that we will encourage for all year 4-6 students.
A student owned, internet-capable device will give your child instant access to unlimited resources and enable them to support, extend, communicate and share their learning in a way that will also prepare them for their future personal and working lives.
Students unable to bring their own device will have shared use of classroom devices.
We believe that we are developing digital citizens at Ahutoetoe School; students who are able and confident users of technology. Chromebooks are valuable tools that make your child’s learning obvious in that they can share their learning, questions, and work with their teachers, peers and parents in real-time. Your child will be encouraged to produce creative work that expresses their interests and demonstrates their learning.
We recommend a Chromebook.
A Chromebook is a Google laptop which runs a Chrome operating system. They are used while connected to the internet with all work being saved online.
Your children's safety is always our first priority and Chromebooks allow a safe environment for students to work and explore subjects. The content of your child’s device is viewable by teachers whilst at school to ensure appropriateness.
We have partnered with Noel Leeming Education who provide parent/community discounts and supports on BYOD Chromebook purchases.
Year 1-3 will have class sets of iPads which will enable them to both use google suite as well as coding, programming, and learning apps.
