Ironside State School offers a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment for our Year 5 and Year 6 students.
In order to best meet the demands of the Australian Curriculum, our upper school students in Year 5 and 6 are encouraged to participate within the BYOD environment.
Students in Prep through to Year 4 are explicitly taught the knowledge, skills and cybersafe behaviours required for entry into a BYOD environment should students and families choose to enter the program.
Ironside State School has a preferred (minimum) participation rate for Year 5 and 6 students within the BYOD program of 80%.
During the life of the current School Strategic Plan (2021-2024) Leveraging Digital is a key pillar of our dedicated school improvement agenda. I invite families to read the beliefs, key actions and measures within the Leveraging Digital strategy of our Strategic Plan.
