​​​​BYOD Lite Program 2022 

In 2022 Salisbury State School will be offering the opportunity for students to participate in a ‘BYOD Lite’ program ahead of our transition to a full BYOD model in 2023. This program will be aligned to our future Annual Improvement plans and will complement our pedagogy to support and extend our students. Our school has committed to making this program a success by upgrading infrastructure, increasing internet bandwidth, and providing opportunities for staff to engage in professional development to increase their knowledge of digital pedagogies.  

In the BYOD Lite program, students will be able to bring their personal iPads to school and will have guaranteed access to a device during class time. These student-owned iPads will only be used by their owner and will allow students to utilise apps effectively, save their work on their own device and provide opportunities to share their work with their parents/carers.  

Greater access to a device does not mean that students will be working on their iPads all day. Our motto when speaking about iPad use is that they are a ‘tool not a toy’. BYOD lite devices would be used alongside our shared devices and only when the teacher has identified that the use of an iPad would provide an opportunity to extend or support student learning. ​

Benefits of BYOD lite include: 

  • One to one access to an iPad – students will not share their device with others 
  • Increased engagement through access to high quality resources and tools to extend learning 
  • Increased student independence and ownership of learning 
  • Increase opportunities for differentiation based on student needs 
  • Increased collaboration with other students 
  • Increase communication between home and school 
  • Development of problem solving and creative skills 
  • Increased digital literacy skills (navigating websites, effective research skills, creating digital texts) ​
