Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Technology is creating and shaping our present and our future. For students to become independent, collaborative and self-motivated learners, they need to be skilled in its use and applications in their daily social and working lives.


 

The preferred device in the College is a 'Chromebook' platform. If a device has been purchased for a previous BYOD model and becomes unusable or irreparable, it is expected that a device that meets the current byod model (Chromebook) and specifications is purchased.

Purchasing options:

  • If you are purchasing a new Chromebook, click here for online purchasing options through CEDP using the activation code ceobyod during sign up.
  • If you already have a Chromebook a small licensing fee applies to register the device to the network. This can be purchased through the Qkr app.

St Pauls Catholic College encourages each student to stretch the boundaries of their individual capabilities. As well as collaboration, creativity, discussion, and research, a strong emphasis is placed on the use of resources and technology to help stimulate independent thinking and to equip our students with 21st century skills, specifically:

  • critical thinking
  • student-centred learning practice
  • working collaboratively
  • learning to share in ethical ways
  • shared knowledge construction
  • problem solving
