Ouror BYOD program for grades 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 is an exciting way we can ensure students have appropriate access to collaboration, organization, and creative tools when they are needed. There are many devices that students could bring to work with in the classroom. However, we have found that using a Google Chromebook is the most practical and simple tool for school use. These devices are available at a variety of retailers in the Edmonton area.
At school, we promote the effective, ethical and educational use of technology with our students. This means that students would bring their own personal devices to school as part of their educational supplies and it will be listed under the appropriate grades school supplies (Gr. 5 to 9).
BYOD does not come without some obstacles. Together we would be responsible to educate students on the proper use of the device, the educational opportunities, internet safety, responsible use, care and maintenance.
- When considering purchasing a device for school, please consider a Chromebook. This is the most cost effective option to meet your child’s educational needs while at Namao School.
- The BYOD would be in grades 5 to 9; hence, your child will use the computer for the remainder of their educational experience at Namao School.
- Safety and protection of the device is never guaranteed, so your child would be responsible to secure the device in a locked locker or in the charging space in the classroom. Damage and loss prevention protection would be the responsibility of the family.
- For those who cannot afford a computer, we would have a few loaners available that could be signed out.
