BYOD iPad Program
Our Lady Star of the Sea operates a 1:1 Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) iPad program from Years 3-6. We highly value engaging and rich learning experiences through effective technology integration and hope to promote and advance critical skills of creativity, collaboration, communicating and problem solving, essential skills for 21st century learners. We believe that a BYOD approach can help empower students and their growth as learners.
