The BYOD trial is currently being evaluated at Merrylands High School. Teachers and students will be asked to complete surveys and participate in focus groups. Student work samples will also be collected. The data from these range of sources will be used to inform the future directions of BYOD at Merrylands High School.
In Year 8 PDHPE, students have been using their own devices to collaboratively create an annotated map to show the range of health services available in the local Merrylands area. This activity was completed using Google Maps and required students to collaborate and share with each other in real time.
The class used a range of personally owned devices for this activity, including Windows 8 laptops and Chromebooks.
