Bring Your Own Device Program
At Denison College we see that access to technology is vital in a future-focused learning environment and to ensure we continue to move our education system into the 21st century model of teaching and learning.
Students today face an ever changing and very dynamic job environment where many employment prospects of tomorrow have not been thought of. This will require a different approach to teaching and learning by incorporating a vast range of pedagogical practices that focus on developing 21st century skills for our students. These include digital literacy, creativity and innovation skills, critical thinking and problem solving skills, communication and collaboration, and self-directed learning.
In response to the end of federal government funding of the laptops for learning program, the DoE has adopted a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy and Denison College has implemented a school wide policy that allows students the option to bring a suitable portable device (laptop or convertible laptop) to school for the purpose of learning and engagement.
Existing DER laptops will continue to be supported and students should still bring them to school. If a student prefers to use their own device, they are requested to return their DER laptop to the school so that it can be used by other students.
This page contains information for parents, carers and students on suitable devices, DEC policy, purchasing options and support resources. It will continue to be updated as more information is made available.
