Yr 7 Learning with Technology

All Year 7 boys will be provided with a Newington owned iPad

Newington ICT have made some recent changes to our BYO device program which will affect students in Year 7.

Newington ICT are excited to announce that they are adopting the Apple School Manager Program. To support this program, we are changing our iPad BYO Model to a 1:1 model for students.

Changing our BYO programme take lots of planning and coordination. We will be introducing a staged program whilst we transition to a fully-fledged 1:1 program for students in Kindergarten through to Year 8, it is expected to take up to 2 years to be entirely 1:1 for the iPad. There are however, some important things to note if your son is heading into Year 7 next year.

The biggest change you may need to know about is that all Year 7 boys will be provided with a Newington owned ‘managed’ iPad. You are not required to purchase a device for your son heading into Year 7, 2017. To find out more about this initiative take a look at our 2017 Program page in the Learning with Technology Insite.
