Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Copperfield College has a 1:1 Learning environment where students have access to their own digital device to use as a powerful learning tool.
The 1:1 Learning environment relies upon Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) where all students from Years 7 to 12 bring a notebook to school for use in their classes.
The link above directs you to a website managed by Centre Com which assists parents/carers and their children to purchase a suitable device (if they do not already have a device that can be brought to school).
Students in BYOD programs use their personally-owned devices at school as they would at home. There is a high likelihood that students will take care of their own device rather than a school-provided device.
The College encourages students to use their devices in meaningful ways as an integral tool for their learning. As the device is owned by students or their parents/carers, it will be their responsibility for it to be kept in good working order like any other personal possession.
The BYOD Guide contains a Responsible Use Agreement that students and their parents/carers must sign before any device is connected to the school network. Parents/Carers of students who do not currently own a device are encouraged to read the specifications for suitable devices prior to purchase, and also encouraged to use the BYOD Portal above to purchase a suitable device.
The College is looking forward to all students using their device in a smart, safe and responsible way. If you have any questions about the 1:1 Learning Program, please contact your Campus Office who will direct you through to someone who can help you.
