At Taylors Lakes Secondary College we value the use of digital technologies as part of everyday teaching and learning. ICT and digital technologies are used for educational purposes to enhance learning and engage students in a manner that is appropriate and balanced.
In order to support student use of digital technologies, the College has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program and students are expected to bring their device to school each day fully charged so they can use it in class to support their learning.
When developing our BYOD program we wanted to ensure our program guaranteed connectivity by clearly explaining the types of devices we are able to fully support (Eg. WiFi access, printing, etc). We also want to ensure that there are lower cost options built into the program with students being able to bring an existing device to school so long as it meets some basic minimum requirements to ensure it can be connected to the College network.
BYOD Program Rationale
To enable all students to develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, practices and attitudes necessary to be engaged, robust digital citizens capable of shaping our future
To enable all students to have access to technology to support and enhance their learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
To ensure a range of options are provided that allow access to the program for all students.
