BYOD refers to students bringing a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning and accessing the internet. A personally owned device is any device brought to school and is owned by the student or the student’s family. It will be necessary for the device to be able to access essential software, e.g. word processing, spreadsheets, etc. At Ryan Catholic College this is achieved through access to the free Google Suite of programs.
Technology plays a large part in the life of a student in the 21st Century. Personal devices can enhance and enrich learning opportunities both at home and at school. Ryan Catholic College is committed to allowing responsible, learning-centred use of personal devices at school so as to provide as many pathways to understanding as possible for our students. The new Australian Curriculum has a range of requirements regarding general capabilities in information and communication technology and it is essential that students have increasing access to technology.
