Year 7 to 13 Catholic Boys School, Auckland New Zealand

Liston College began a trial in 2014 where students in selected Year 7 class and Year 8 classes were able to bring their own approved digital device to school. The purpose of bringing a digital device such as a laptop or tablet is to assist the student in his work inside and outside of the classroom. After a largely successful trial it has been decided to extend BYOD to include all students in Years 7, 8 and 9 in 2015.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) - students will be able to bring a mobile device (this must meet the minimum specifications) to support their learning in the classroom. These will have access to the internet and the school online environment via the Liston College wireless network.

We see this as a further step forward in making more extensive use of digital technologies and as an important way to improve teaching and learning at this exciting time for Liston College.
