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: ✦ Anytime, 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 catalogued 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.
Starting second semester (January 2016), we will require that all students have a wirelesss laptop/netbook/tablet device they can bring to school each day and use in classrooms.
