Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is an initiative implemented by Frederick Irwin Anglican School allowing students to embrace a personalised learning experience, both at school and at home, by allowing students to bring their personal technology devices into the school to assist with achieving their learning aspirations.
The BYOD supported technologies include, but are not limited to, the use of such devices as slate or tablet computers, laptops and transformable tablets running either Microsoft Windows or Apple OSX operating systems.
Other devices such as Apple iPads and android tablets will also work; however inefficiencies in the functionality of these devices make them unsuitable for use as the main device used in the classroom. Due to the difficulties in navigating the user interface on devices with small screens such as iPhones, iPods and Smartphones, we do not recommend the use of any device with a screen size of less than 10 inches.
An outline of the recommended specifications for a BYOD device is outlined in ‘Recommended BYOD Device specifications‘.
