The Springfield Anglican College is committed to providing opportunities for our students to engage with a complex digital world. Our College-wide approach provides students with opportunities to be creative, active, collaborative and responsible users of their devices.
Our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy is designed and regularly revised to keep up with the needs of our learners.
The BYOD program commences in Year 3 on the Primary Campus and continues throughout their learning journey to Year 12. With the demands of a robust digital curriculum and external and national tests such as NAPLAN utilising digital interfaces, our BYOD program aims to set up our students for future success. Specific programs, training and lessons are in place to help our technology users learn how to care for and manage their devices.
We are mindful of the value that parents invest in resources for their children and consider this factor when defining the requirements for each year. Our policy facilitates parental choice about devices that consider learner needs, differing budgets and personal preferences. Our College network reflects our multi-platform approach in its ability to support students using a range of devices.
