BYOD in Primary and Secondary years

atp-2181Primary Device – iPad

The iPad is a popular device for 1:1 programs around the world enabling anywhere, anytime learning where students can be creators, consumers and collaborators. It provides an intuitive, multimedia-rich access to digital learning. The iPad’s educational popularity has encouraged Apple to provide extensive support and developers to create a vast array of educational apps. They are light and portable and the instant start-up of the iPad means greater use of class time for learning.

Middle School Device – Laptop

The use of laptops for middle years’ students provides greater functionality and allows for a wider use of peripherals. Recent developments in laptops has provided lighter models with greater battery life and a quicker start up time. Laptops are productivity devices and will allow for the use of industry standard software, such as Microsoft Office, Adobe and Autodesk suites, and web based services.
