Bring Your Own Device

Killara High School will implement the NSW Department of Education’s Student Bring Your Own Device policy with Year 7 in 2017. Students are expected to bring their own device to school in order to support their learning experience.

Our students are active citizens in a world that utilises digital technologies in almost all aspects of life. The seamless integration of technology into the learning fabric of our school will aim to enhance student learning outcomes by increasing student engagement.

The NSW Department of Education Student Bring Your Own Device Policy will provide our school community with another avenue to develop successful learners by transforming the student learning experience. The development of successful learners forms an integral component of our school’s management plan.

 

WHAT IS BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD)?

Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, is a technological program in education and in the corporate world.

BYOD recognises that technology and choices about technology are very much personal.

BYOD acknowledges that technology in education means more than meeting specific curriculum requirements.

BYOD is designed to give you, as students and families freedom to make technology choices that suit you and all your circumstances.

 

WHY B.Y.O.D

BYOD was designed to replace the Digital Education Revolution (DER) program which ended in 2013.

BYOD allows each subject to move from physical to electronic texts over time, to deliver lessons with a unified teaching methodology across all year groups and to bring rich learning experiences to Killara High School. All faculties are committed to developing increased integration with the BYOD program over the coming years.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

In 2017 students in Year 7 are expected to bring their own computing device to school every day.
