Merrylands High School conducted a BYOD trial in Term 4, 2013 and rolled out BYOD for all Year 8 and 9 students in 2014, and for all Year 8-10 students in 2015. The school recognises the need for prepare our students for a rapidly-changing world, where technology plays large role in our personal, social and professional lives. Many students already bring their own devices to school and are already using them in class to enhance their learning. Our findings from student and parent consultations also revealed our students want to have access to devices in the classroom. Below is a summary of the results from student and parent surveys, as well as student focus groups that have driven the BYOD initiative.
