Laptop Program

 

BYOx Program - 2019

 

In 2019 all Year 11 students and the Year 7 Science Extension Pathway (BSEP) will be required to participate in the BYOx program. This program requires students to bring a digital device such as a laptop or tablet to school to support their learning. Android devices are not supported.

Students using their own device will be: 
  • Operating in a digital classroom – Accessing lesson material, assessment and a dedicated student working space that can be used to collate notes, conduct research and online learning.
  • Using software and processes that are consistent with industry practice, preparing our learners for career development and the workforce.
  • When appropriate, have the opportunity to receive feedback on learning and assessment from teachers.

Microsoft Office for Personal Devices

All state school students from Prep to Year 12 can now download multiple free copies of the Microsoft Office Suite to their personal home and mobile computer equipment.
Students who want the free software will need an active Managed Internet Service (MIS) login, school email account and password - those who do not have these should contact their school's MIS Administrator or class teacher. The administrator will help students activate their MIS login.
Currently, MS Office Suite is available for students' personal equipment only - not equipment which is part of a school network. The following information has been designed to support students with the download.
 
MAC:

If they have any further issues, they will need to speak to their MIS Administrator.

 

OneDrive for Students (Cloud Storage)

​From 21 June 2018, students in our school will be able to access Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business through the MIS Gateway.
 
OneDrive for Business provides a secure place on the internet where school-related files can be stored, shared and synced.
 
Below is a link to information outlining how OneDrive will function within the department’s IT network, as well as information packs for parents and students.
 
Who will gain access?
 
Students across all year levels will gain access providing they have at least a 0.1 FTE enrolment at your school.
 
Each student will gain access to:
  • a OneDrive for Business library with five terabytes of storage per person
  • an expanded suite of Office Online web applications, including OneNote, Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
