Bring your Own Device
In 2015, Mount Albert Grammar School began its official introduction of BYOD. In 2017, students in years 9-11 are expected to bring a device. We see a personal device as an important tool for your son or daughter’s education into the 21st century.

BYOD for Years 9, 10 and 11 in 2017
In 2015, Mount Albert Grammar School began its official introduction of BYOD. It is now mandatory for every year 9 student to bring a computing device (tablet or computer). In 2016, students in both year 9 and year 10 are expected to bring a device.
The Decision to introduce BYOD
Students with devices are better equipped for 21st century learning and modern technologies are increasingly significant in their personal and working lives.
The School’s Preparation for BYOD
There has been extensive planning for BYOD in the areas of staff professional development and network capability.
The School encourages students to participate in society as good digital citizens where they are technically capable, digitally literate and socially responsible.
