Concept Data has teamed up with Findon Highscool to provide BYOD laptops at a discounted price in order to make it more widely accessible for students to be able to own a device. The BYOD program whilst still new has shown incredible benefits to the general classroom workflow around the school and has proven to be a very strong move in the right direction for our school. Devices are a significant part of the lives of students and should be an integral part of their learning so it is with the up most importance that each student purchases their own laptop. BYOD puts students in a position of power over their own learning and ensures that students always have their own platform to work upon whenever they may need it.
The BYOD program is necessary to replace the fleet of old federally funded Digital Education Revolution (DER) laptops that the school has been using. The DER program provided much needed resources to schools, however the funding was not ongoing.
If you cannot afford to purchase a device for your student(s) please contact the school to discuss options as having access to a computer is crucial for their education.
