To ensure your child's device runs smoothly and is protected against threats, it should be regularly updated while at home (Education Queensland firewalls prevent these updates from occurring).
Before you start: If your device is running Windows 10/11 in S Mode, you'll need to take it out of S Mode before you can install apps from the web. If you are unsure if your device is in S Mode go to Settings > System > About, then scroll down to 'Windows Specifications'
Student's today face an ever-changing, technologically advanced, global working environment. Therefore, being equipped to use and engage with technology are essential skills to be successful both today and in the future. For this reason, we require all Year 11 and 12 Mabel Park SHS students enrolled in an ATAR (General) subject from 2021 to transition to a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. The program will continue to transition to all year 10, 11 and 12 students.
Schools who embrace a BYOD model enjoy many benefits to student learning and success, such as:
· increased student motivation, confidence and engagement with learning because students are familiar with their devices
· bridging the gap between school and home learning by making learning a part of students' lives and by making it readily accessible
· greater autonomy in the classroom
· greater collaboration between students and teachers
· the acquisition of critical IT technical skills and competencies which are paramount for future study and employment.
From 2020 Mabel Park State High School will gradually roll out BYOD for students in Years 10-12.
