BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
The New Zealand Curriculum vision states that they desire all New Zealanders to become “confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners”. E-learning is an integral part of assisting in this vision.
Green Bay School is currently implementing BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices) in the senior school (Y5-8). BYOD is optional. Green Bay Primary School currently hosts BYOD for Chromebooks. Chromebooks are the device used at this school.
Each class has a collection of Chromebooks which the children are able to use and, with the addition of BYOD, has led to an increase in accessibility for all students to engage in a rich and full digital curriculum.
All school and student Chromebooks are managed on a safe network. The use of Google Suite and Hapara accounts provide a safe and seamless learning platform between school and home.
All students and their parents who decide to bring a Chromebook to use at school must read and sign the Green Bay BYOD Policy.
