What is Bring Your Own Device?
Put simply, BYOD is a solution where students bring their own devices to school in order to access the internet and/or school network by Wi-Fi, be it a tablet, laptop or other devices.
Students, parents or guardians, purchase and maintain their own device which will be used at school and at home for learning activities.
To make our rollout of BYOD as simple as possible, we have assembled this menu to outline the requirements for device specifications, and some advice on which types of devices are best suited to assisting student learning. What software is supplied to students at no cost? What online services come with your enrollment in Kingscliff High School?
