Bring Your Own Designated Device (BYODD)

Trinity Anglican College uses laptops to enrich the classroom experience for all students in the Senior School (Years 7-12). The concept involves a Bring Your Own Designated Device (BYODD) program and utilises the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).

This initiative will enrich the classroom experience and offer greater potential for authentic learning experiences in all subjects. Through the program, students will be able to access Canvas, our new Learning Management System (LMS), which offers real time access to class resources, assignments, homework, discussions, marks and teacher feedback.

It is an exciting time as we move toward a new model of personal learning devices. This document will assist students and parents in planning for the Bring Your Own Designated Device (BYODD) program. It includes an overview of the program and a purchasing guide, which outlines minimum requirements and functionality.
