Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT)

Bishop Druitt College has adopted a compulsory 'bring your own technology' (BYOT) approach for students in Years 7-12. This approach enables students to bring suitable information and communication technologies to school to use in their learning. Students in Years 5 & 6 are encouraged to be part of the program as well.

The technology information sheet available from the link below provides guidance about the different types of ICT devices available and their suitability for learning at school. This sheet will assist parents to make the best choice of device for their students. There is also a list of typical questions that parents might have about BYOT and their answers.

Parents should be aware that the college is currently reviewing the details of the BYOT policy for Year 7 2020. We are looking in particular at the types of devices that are best suited for learning in the secondary campus. Early research and discussion indicate laptops to be the most suitable device for high school learning. While a final decision has not been made, parents and carers may wish to keep this in mind when purchasing computer devices for Christmas and birthdays in the future.

Access to the Bishop Druitt College ICT network and the internet using BYOT can greatly enhance learning, as well as demand some responsibilities. Students are expected to use these ICT facilities only for educational purposes and to behave in a responsible manner when working online. Please see the policies below for more information:
