“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally-owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any technology device brought into the school and is owned by a student or the student’s family. There are different models of BYOD to suit FUNCTIONALITY and COST. Warilla High School has chosen a range of BYOD models that will meet the needs of students and their families according to these two values. Warilla High School students will be asked to bring their own laptop to school. The laptop must be able to connect to the school WiFi network and have specific software or apps installed to assist students in learning in the 21st Century.
The online HP store is our preferred option for laptops, these come with 3 years warranty with the option of adding accidental damage (HIGHLY Recommended) & 24-month interest-free.
All NSW Department of Education Students have access to free installation of the latest version of Microsoft Office including the full Office Software on 5 different laptops or Desktops, and 5 different Mobile devices such as phones and tablets across all platforms.
It is essential that students download and activate (open one of the software applications) at home via their Student Portal. Instructions can be found here
