Bring Your Own Device


What is Bring Your Own Device


Ashfield Public School has a Bring Your Own device initiative. It involves students bringing personal technological devices from home for use at school. These devices include laptops, smart phones, tablets, iPads and iPods.

At school students use their device in a range of ways. Examples of how a device may be used at school include:

  • Conducting research by accessing the Internet via the school WiFi.
  • Creating a film or take photographs as part of a school project.
  • Calculating sums on a calculator.
  • Composing text including note taking.
  • Interacting with an educational app.
  • Using a calendar


Why Bring Your Own Device?

Bring Your Own Device supports greater access to devices,  as we enable the effective and appropriate use of technology at school.

Technology is a spring board for critical thinking, research, problem solving, effective communication, curiosity and imagination.
