Year 2 BYOD classes for 2018

21st century education integrates technologies, engaging students in ways not previously possible, creating new learning and teaching possibilities, enhancing achievement and extending interactions with local and global communities.”
– MCEETA – Cotemporary Learning Conference
 

UMG State School has continued to enjoy success this year in our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program. We are excited to announce the next step in our BYOD rollout for 2018 which will see all students in Year 2 encouraged to purchase or hire a device. Rather than have one standalone device class in Year 2, all Year 2 classes will be device classes.

We are inviting all parents and caregivers to a Parent Information Session, on Wednesday 13th September at either 3.30pm or 6pm in the Hall, off Cremin Street. Please note you only need to attend one of these sessions. The purpose will be to inform and provide information to parents and caregivers on:

  • Year 2 1:1 BYOD iPad classrooms in 2018
  • The UMG State School BYOD Acceptable Use Policy
  • The UMG State School BYOD Participation Agreement
  • The UMG State School BYOD Handbook
  • Purchasing options and minimum requirements
  • Hiring options and payment
  • Frequently asked questions session

Detailed BYOD iPad information will be provided during these sessions and it is important that all parents and caregivers with a child going into Year 2 in 2018 attend.

If you are unable to please contact Susan Brook at skers35@eq.edu.au , or 3421 3111.
