The Benefits of BYOD
Aveley Secondary College has a focus on developing the digital literacy skills of students to prepare them for future pathways and directions. The Bring Your Own Ddevice (BYOD) program supports the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) across the curriculum. ICT provides significant educational value but also requires support and education for appropriate usage.
BYOD has been implemented at Aveley Secondary College (ASC) to allow students access to their personal devices for educational purposes in order to enhance motivation and engagement within a classroom setting. Our aim is to prepare students to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. We recognise that ICT is an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Students use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly and creatively.
Students will learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures. Increased capability in the use of ICT promotes initiative and independent learning; with students being able to make informed judgements about when and where to use ICT to best effect, and consider its implications for home and work both now and in the future.
