Implementation

Initially we would like to target Year 4 as our BYODD grade, with the view that children in this grade would then have the use of their Chromebook for three years and potentially into their early high school years as well.  Given the rapid changes in devices and technology most devices have a life expectancy of around 5 years (As per Google’s ‘end of life' policy). Term 3, 2017 is a nominal date whereby we would like to have as many of our year 4 children as possible with one to one access to Chromebooks of their own through the BYODD program. Years 3, 5 and 6 parents may of course choose to purchase a Chromebook for their child, should they wish, as the devices are being used extensively in these classes and their child will certainly benefit from one to one access to the device.
