Electronic Devices

2017 BYOD Requirements

The technology for Birdwood High School is ever changing in line with the advancement of technology and continual and increasing need for students to access electronic devices. Birdwood High does provide some access to computers etc. in labs that can be booked by teachers, and several areas across the school have small labs. Many of our students already have their own laptop or tablet, which means their device is more portable across different areas of the school and increases flexibility of usage.
Students are actively encouraged to purchase and be responsible for looking after their own electronic device. Where students have a laptop or tablet and require a desktop computer for particular tasks, students will be able to access a desktop computer.

Which device should I buy?

Students are able to use a variety of devices on our network. Each type of device has its advantages and disadvantages.

Devices such as tablets have a number of advantages:

  • They are ‘always on’ and quick to begin using
  • They are less likely to be infected with viruses (particularly iPads)
  • The Camera is integrated and easy to use with other apps
  • Light and easy to carry around


One disadvantage is that tablets do not have USB ports, so information can only be transferred wirelessly or via email. They are also more fragile than laptops.

Laptops, Mac or PC also have their advantages:

  • Better for typing long essays
  • Able to connect to a wider range of devices
  • Wider range of software available
  • Laptops are more robust and therefore less susceptible to breakages.

 

The choice is yours. If buying a tablet we would recommend a model with plenty of storage over the lifetime of the device.

PC’s must have antivirus software installed before we will allow it to be connected to the network, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast and AVG are free downloads and are quite adequate.

Please also make sure that any device (MP3 player, mobile phone, laptop, tablet, etc) that students bring to school is covered by your home insurance.
