|FAQs about BYOD
In an information and technology-driven age, our students must be well prepared for the workplaces of the future. Successful tertiary study also requires proficiency in using technology for learning, communication, research and presentation.
RPCS endorses and promotes responsible, learning-centred use of personal devices at school to provide as many pathways to understanding as possible.
- Stages 2 and 3 have Windows based laptops for shared use in the classroom.
- Year 7 students are provided with a high specification windows tablet computer and attached keyboard, for use at home and school. The cost of this device is subsidised by the school and the remainder billed to parents with school fees over three years. This device should last to the end of year 9.
In years 10, 11 and 12, students must bring a device to school each day. This may be the device from year 7-9, or a device of any platform with at least a 7inch screen. These devices are for educational use in class as directed by the teacher. Students will have internet and network access through the school network and WiFi. Phones may not be used in place of a classroom device.
