Narrandera High School values the rich learning experiences that educational interactions with technology can bring. The promotion and advancement of this possibility is part of the school's educational philosophies. We have noticed an increasing number of students from all year groups bringing their own devices and would like to support students and families in this aspect of their education.
By facilitating Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Narrandera High School will be able to empower its students and give them direct involvement in the way they use technology in their learning. At the same time, BYOD enables teachers to build on their experiences in the previous centrally-delivered model and adapt to this new BYOD environment without losing the core technological capabilities on which they have been able to rely. An important advantage of a BYOD Policy is that it will enable students to bring a device to school that they can use confidently and in the knowledge that it will support them in their learning goals.
We do understand that not all students will find it possible to purchase a device to bring to school and will explore a range of options to support equitable access to technology for all students, including the use of our existing fleet of laptops for class sets and loan schemes.
