What is BYOD?
“Bring your own device” (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally-owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any technology device brought into the school and is owned by a student or the student’s family. There are different models of BYOD. Merrylands High School has chosen a BYOD model that will meet the needs of most families according to data from student surveys, parent surveys and student focus groups. Merrylands High School students will be asked to bring their own laptop or tablet to school. The laptop or tablet must be able to connect to the school WiFi and have specific software or apps installed. Click here for more details.
