Technology in Learning.
The specified Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Laptop Program at Eltham High School is central to our educational program. Laptops are used in every class as part of an integrated, holistic approach to student learning.
The vision for Eltham High School’s specified BYOD policy is to provide every student with access to technology that will enhance their learning both in and out of the classroom. Our aim as a school is to develop programs which integrate the technology into student learning, allowing for transformative learning practises.
We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.
