How does it work?

Quite simply, your child brings their own web-enabled device to school!

This will allow students to access the internet at any time to enrich their learning, and also to utilise online learning resources aligned to the Australian Curriculum to support and engage students in their learning..

One cornerstone of ICT at ADHS is GAFE.

GAFE is Google Apps for Education. The Google Apps environment is a host of applications available to educational institutions or use in school communities. The applications that are provided as core are email, calendar, documents (docs), slides, spreadsheets, and forms. A range of other applications (Apps) are available to load onto each student's account. These allow staff and students to create, share and collaborate in an online space where the school can monitor usage (as we do with our current network).

How will my child's learning be enhanced by BYOD and GAFE?

Many lessons are collaborative allowing students to work together, sharing information accessed through personal devices. When the work is individual, students may use computers and other devices located in classrooms and/or in the e-Hub.

ADHS is committed to providing teaching and learning programs designed to ensure every child can learn in a dynamic, exciting and challenging learning environment. ADHS has purchased an extensive range of laptops and Chromebooks to assist students with access to online learning resources.

ICT Policies

All students use the ADHS network and are therefore subject to the terms outlined in the Acceptable Use of ICT Policy.  Many of the applications we use to enhance students' learning experiences are from third parties. Those which we use are detailed in the third party permissions policy.

Students new to the school in 2015 are required to read, complete and submit the Acceptable Use of ICT and Third Party Permissions Policy before they will be given their ICT log on details.
