iPad Program

BYOD Program 2018

The new device purchasing portal for 2018 is currently under development. A login will be provided when it is ready.

Following up 2017’s successful implementation of our iPad program, next year will see all year levels joining this initiative. iPads, notebooks and tablets are used to enrich the learning experience within the classroom by putting digital resources at the fingertips of our students. The program provides opportunities for innovation and creativity while supporting the excellent academic culture that has already been developed at Oberon High School.

The devices have been chosen for a range of features including: ease of use, accessibility, ability to function in a managed environment, and portability. The implementation of this program will enhance the learning experience of our students. It will provide opportunities for innovation and creativity while supporting the excellent academic culture that has already been developed.

Three device types with model options are being recommended in preparation for 2018’s program:

Option A: Bring your own iPad.

Option B: Bring your own Notebook.

Option C: Bring your own Tablet.

Students can bring devices that they have used at primary school or elsewhere. Protective covers are required and also be sure to have any restrictions or management enrolments, proxies, profiles etc. removed from previous schools.

Option: Purchase through JB Education

The iPads, notebooks and tablets will be used in conjunction with a digital textbook subscription. The digital textbook subscription will allow students to access a broader range of texts at a lower cost than the purchase paper texts that are currently used. This subscription will be reflected on the booklist later in the year. A levy will also be included to allow for the purchase of apps and Office 365 subscription. Protocols for use have been developed and will be detailed at the commencement of the program.
