Computer and Internet
Gympie SHS has a strong history of ICT integration, with the Laptop and iLearn programs leading the way. Bring Your Own ‘x’ (BYOD) is a new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st century learning. It is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students use their personally-owned mobile devices to access the department’s information and communication (ICT) network.
We have chosen to support the implementation of a BYOD model because:
• BYOD recognises the demand for seamless movement between school, work, home and play
• our BYOD program assists students to improve their learning outcomes in a contemporary educational setting
• assisting students to become responsible digital citizens enhances the teaching learning process and achievement of student outcomes as well as the skills and experiences that will prepare them for their future studies and career.
