BYOx sample student charter

Schools can adapt the BYOx sample student charter (DOC, 336KB) to suit their individual requirements.


‘When the current prep students move into Year 1 next year, the BYOx program will continue with them into that year level. The Year 1 and 2 teachers have already been provided with iPads and have been trained in their use and pedagogy realignment. They have also been provided with access to an iPad trolley for use with Year 1 and 2 classes, allowing teachers to change and add programs to iPads simultaneously.’
