Digital literacies are as integral to today’s learning as the pen and paper. Our school believes in equitable access to all learning at all times for all families. Blockhouse Bay Intermediate hosts both BYOD for chrome books as well as a suite of devices in every class. With every class holding devices, topped up by roaming stations along with BYOD, every student has full access to our digital curriculum.
Our chrome books live on a managed and safe network and each child will either have their own Google Class or Hapara account to ensure they can be linked to their learning both at school or at home.
We also encourage BYOD for families who have compatible devices and we encourage all families without a device to at least have a chrome book at home with internet access so that their students do not miss out on the rich online learning environments our school now and increasingly will offer.
Please remember that we do not support tablets and iPads for digital learning. For equity across the school in our curriculum design and delivery we are operating chrome books.
