BYOD Information

2016/ 2017 Digital Technologies Information (BYOD)

Question and answer meeting:

Wednesday 26th October 8.20am
Thursday 27th October 3.15pm

Our Chromebooks and iPads have led to incredible opportunities for our students over the last few years. The school has increased technology by around 50% in the last two years which has been so fortunate. We are relying our learners to be connected more and more. So, we need to keep the BYOD growing in order to keep our students connected to all of the new, exciting learning possibilities.  

Senior students at Worser Bay School are able to bring a digital device to school to assist their learning. This is not compulsory but we would like to encourage people who are able to get on board.  

If you are interested in purchasing a device before the start of school, we have provided some guidance below. If you have any questions before the end of the term, please see or email Nicola or John:,

Students can use their devices throughout the day for collaborative learning, web-based research and applications, including creating documents and presentations.

  • Students will need to access Google Apps.
Device Security
  • The security of a student owned device is the responsibility of the student.
  • All insurance (theft and damage) should be covered by the owner of the device.

Data Security
