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.

Regarding the types of devices that are best suited for learning in the secondary campus, research and discussion indicate laptops to be the most suitable device for high school. 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:

 

Device Purchase Plan

We have been very fortunate to have formed a partnership with Coffs Computers around our bring your own device (BYOD) program for students in Years 7-12. Coffs Computers will sell devices suitable for this program at a very competitive price to members of the BDC community through an online shop front.
