BYOD at Robina State High School
BYOD @ Robina State High School Robina State High School will continue in our commitment to the full implementation of a BYO device program in 2020 and beyond, with a requirement for all students (Years 7-12) to have their own device to support and enhance their learning experience. The BYO device program gives families the freedom to purchase laptops of their choice which meet minimum requirements to enable access to our school network. Bring your own device (BYOD) is a concept that recognises that different individuals have different learning styles and needs – one device does not suit everyone. Therefore, in every class at every level students have the option to carry a device of their own choosing. The benefits of the BYOD Program are: • Improves access to web-based research materials for students • Improves standards of digital literacy of both teachers and students • Moves towards knowledge construction as opposed to content delivery • Extends learning beyond the classroom • Educates students as to the importance of appropriate and ethical behaviour online At Robina SHS the use of the device is integrated into the day to day curriculum. Students will be provided with a range of resources and supporting information required for each subject area. Students will be have access to an online OneNote class notebook that will have the majority of resources and supporting material required for each subject area. This will provide teachers with the ability to support students with electronic resources, videos, web links etc. all in one place.
Do you have your device ready for the start of the new school year? All students are required to have a 'Bring Your Own Device' (BYOD) for Day 1 of 2023. Here is an overview of devices that are and aren't acceptable at our school. For more information, please consult our BYOD Booklet.
