​Bring Your Own 'd' (BYOd) is a new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st century learning.
 
It is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students, or staff, use their own personally-owned mobile devices to access the departments' information and communication (ICT) network.
 
At GSHS we offer the BOYd option to students in Years 10, 11 and 12, however, students in years 8 and 9 are welcome to bring their own device also.
 
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 and increased student motivation, confidence and engagement with learning because students are familiar with their devices
  • 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 and learning process and achievement of student outcomes as well as the skills and experiences that will prepare them for their future studies and careers

 

Traditional desktop computers in labs will still be available for student use, however with the use of the ICTs in the curriculum, the implementation of BYOd into the future offers a seamless transition for learning between home and school.

Students wishing to participate in the BYOd program are asked to complete and return relevant forms, along with $50 connectivity to the school office.  This needs to be done before devices with be connected.
