BYOx

In order to inspire excellence in diverse and creative learners, Gympie SHS continues to strive towards relevant engaging learning environments and experiences that meet the needs of our students in the 21C.  As part of this shift in teaching and learning experiences to meet these needs, teachers pursue an increased focus on:
  • Project Based Learning
  • Student driven, negotiated and regulated learning
  • Authentic inquiry based learning
  • Flexible and differentiated grouping of students
  • Increased scope for choice in assessment modes
  • Greater participation in collaborative problem solving and learning networks
As a result a personal ICT device as a key enabler for these learning experiences has never been more vital.  Achieving a 1:1 ratio of student to devices when required will deliver much greater capacity and consistency in the delivery and shift towards this contemporary learning environment.
In order to facilitate this goal of 1:1 and in keeping with global, national and state trends, GSHS will open a BYOx program with all students in 2016.
All students participating in the BYOx program will need to have all SRS fees​ and the Technology Fee of $20 paid as well as returning a signed Charter Agreement​ before they will be granted access.

Android devices are not supported on the Gympie SHS network as they are in some ways incompatible and a security risk.
Students will need local admin access to the machine for the initial on-boarding (connecting). They will also need any software that has been installed to limit their access turned off/ removed for the connection to be successful. Once the initial on-boarding is complete you are again able to restrict the student without them losing access to the network.
