Karalee State School- BYOD Vision 2021 and beyond
Bring your own Device (BYOD) is a new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st century learning. it is a term used to describe a digital ownership model where students use their personally owned devices to access the department's information and communication (ICT) network.
Access to the department's ICT network is provided only if the laptop meets the department's security requirements which, at a minimum, requires that antivirus software has been installed, is running and is kept updated on the device. Windows 10 has Windows Defender built into the operating system and is more than adequate virus protection.
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 careers.
State School we believe that the BYOD program will be successful if the long
term goals listed below remain a priority. The long term priorities were developed
by Staff and Family representatives in 2020.
teachers at Karalee will become pedagogical leaders in digital literacy.
The students at Karalee will have equitable
access to the program.
The students at Karalee will be taught Cyber
safety strategies to ensure that the digital learning platform is a safe space
for all students.
The BYOD Karalee program will incorporate best
practice in recycling and e-waste management.
The school will maintain the highest standards
in relation to staff and student data security.
The school will align the BYOD curriculum and
pedagogy to high school practices to help students transition positively to
middle school and beyond.
The school will celebrate and share with the
community the Digital Cultural within Karalee State School.
