Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

29/01/2019
BYOD
​Upper Coomera State College invites you to participate in our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. In this program, students are invited to bring their own personal devices to school to support and enhance their learning. To be eligible to participate in the BYOD Program, students must agree to and sign the new ICT Responsible Use Policy and bring a device that meets the minimum specifications to school. Students will be able to carry these devices into all classes so they will not be left unattended unless they are in a classroom’s locked storage area.
