Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for Digital Learning at AAHS
The advantages for students who bring in their own device to school are many and varied. A student-owned internet capable device can be an important part of a student's toolkit that will give them instant access to unlimited resources and enable them to support, extend, communicate and share their learning in a way that will prepare them for their futures.
The advantages of student-owned devices include:
Any time, anywhere access to class resources, support and extension activities
The ability to develop "digital" folders and exercise books for their classes (that can't be lost, and never need replacing) through Google Apps
Anytime, anywhere access to the school library e-books, database and cataloged web resources.
Greater ability to communicate with teachers, parents, and peers to support their learning through instant access to their student e-mail
Anytime, anywhere access to unlimited resources and information on the internet
The ability to draft, redraft and publish their work at the click of a button
Allowing students to become active partners in their learning
Internet safety and helping our students become good digital citizens is of paramount importance at AAHS!
