Bring Your Own Device

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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. 

To alleviate some of the decision making associated with choosing a laptop suitable for the BYOD program, we have provided preselected laptops that are available through the supplier CompNow, which can be accessed via the purchasing portal from the link below or from the link within the flyer.

​Please ensure the chosen device meets or exceeds the specifications listed in the Ironside BYOD Laptop Specifications Document on this page.  We do not provide the ability to use Apple, Android, Linux, or Chrome based operating systems or devices. ​

Please watch the two short videos below for information on how to onboard your BYOD laptop, and also how to install Office.
