BYODD

Implementation of BYODD will begin with Year 7, 2019. This means that parents are required to either purchase or use a laptop that they currently own, which meets the College’s specifications, for their daughter’s use at school.

The College is designating the following device(s) for Year 7 2019

  • MacBook Air 13in/ 1.6 GHz/ 8GB/ 128 or 256 GB with 3 or 4 year Applecare warranty OR 

  • A recently purchased (less than 2 years old) MacBook Air, Macbook or MacBook Pro. 


 

Why BYODD?
At Our Lady of Mercy Catholic College, our vision for learning fosters a love of deep learning, encourages students to think critically and creatively and provides a foundation for authentic learning. All students will have the opportunity to engage in learning that incorporates real‐life experiences, technology, and tools that are already familiar to them. Learning is enriched through interactions with community members. The effective use of technology can support this vision for learning and can thereby bring authentic learning into the classroom. (Horizon Report 2015 p5)

  • Connecting to the College wireless. 

  • Connecting to the internet. 

  • Connecting to CloudShare (the College Virtual learning environment); and Chrome browser. 

  • The College has the right to inspect the laptop if there is concern that a device has been used contrary to the
