Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) at Calamvale Community College enables students to bring a range of devices to school. The emphasis is upon students having the opportunity to access digital technology and incorporate the advantage of this into their learning.  It is always to be remembered that digital technology is a tool for learning, actual learning is your student engaging with content and mastering skills in a meaningful and effective manner.

Our plan for the College is to provide:

  • Prep-Year 3 access to iPads in class when needed and classroom interactive whiteboards to engage with for whole group activities.
  • Years 4 and 5 opportunity to BYOD an iPad with access to iPads in class when needed and subject to availability.
  • Year 6  laptops for use in class but may purchase BYOD laptop or iPad which will transition into Junior Secondary with them.
  • Year 7 access to school owned laptops or desktops in class in a shared arrangement. Year 7 has already been given the opportunity to purchase a laptop for use throughout Junior Secondary.
  • Year 8 and 9 access to school owned laptops or desktops and in class devices in a shared arrangement when needed and subject to availability. Students are encouraged to purchase laptops that will transition into Senior School.
  • Year 10-12 BYO device preferably laptops due to the technical needs of courses. There will be a term-based loan system subject to availability. 2015 Year 12 students are the last group operating with the 1:1 Take Home devices that are out of warranty in 2016, so the program will not run beyond 2015.​
