Mt Eliza Primary School is committed to providing students with skills and experience using a range of digital technologies to enhance and broaden their learning.
A range of technologies are utilised across the school to enhance our teaching and learning programs. We have a set of school owned iPads that teachers use as part of their classroom programs. In addition to this, our teachers have direct access to netbooks and desktops in their classrooms.
In the Grade 5 and 6 area, we have a well established a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) iPad program. This is a 1:1 program, so it provides our teachers and students very easy access to technology. This program enhances our teaching and learning program in these year levels..
2017 GRADE 5 AND 6 BYOD PROGRAM
In 2017, we will continue to implement our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in our Grade 5 and 6 area. Below is a copy of the Student Agreement which clearly identifies how students responsibly use their iPads when at school. It states what inappropriate use of the iPad looks like and the consequences based around them.

As a school, we have an ICT Acceptable Usage policy which identifies the ways in which support our families. This policy provides clear guidelines on how students are supported to be responsible when using a range of devices at school.
