Welcome to BYOD at Mount Albert Grammar School
Students at Mount Albert Grammar School are required to bring a personal computing device for use in class to support their learning.
The school has reviewed which devices are best suited for our students’ needs and they may bring either a MacBook, a Windows laptop, an iPad with a keyboard or a Chromebook as their digital learning device.
There will be a BYOD drop-in question time from 3.30pm to 6.30pm on Wednesday 13 November in the school library. Parents are encouraged to come along to discuss which device from those recommended will best suit their child’s needs.
Smartphones are not considered as a suitable main device in the BYOD programme, but can be used in class for educational purposes with teacher approval.
Please feel free to e-mail me if these BYOD pages do not answer your queries.
