Bring Your Own (BYO) iPad Program

At North Melbourne Primary School we are committed to giving students the best possible start to their education: building skills for the future, not the past. We embed technology throughout the curriculum and provide new opportunity for students to represent their thinking, clarify ideas, make connections, identify patterns, and reflect on their thinking across the curriculum.

We have been successfully running a Bring Your Own (BYO) iPad program for Grade 3-­6 students for several years. Students are able to bring a personally owned iPad to school and use it to enhance their learning opportunities. The BYO iPad program forms part of the School’s Strategic Plan to create highly engaged, personalised learning environments. Students are given the opportunity to become digitally fluent, become responsible users of technology and develop skills that will prepare them for high school and beyond.
