1:1 BYOD Program


1:1 BYOD Program

 

As a 21st Century Learning Community, Point Cook P-9 College is committed to leading change with students and their families.

 

Point Cook P-9 College has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program from Prep to Year 9. The BYOD Program means families are requested to supply a device for their own child. It is not compulsory; however, we encourage all families to participate.

 

It is important that you understand that the device does not replace traditional pen and paper activities. We still believe there is a place for these tools today and in the future. The device is used during certain times in the day and when needed to support student learning. Students will continue to interact with each other face-to-face during class times.

 

We are continuously seeing the benefits that the 1:1 program can bring to broadening student learning, digital competencies, increased student choice and the personalisation of learning for our students.
