BYOD Program

By providing an opportunity for students to bring their own device, Elanora State High School endeavours to produce a learning experience that meets student needs in a 21st century learning environment.

By supporting students to become responsible digital citizens, we enhance not only their learning in the classroom, but also the development of skills that will prepare them for their future studies and careers.

This page outlines all the requirements for our BYOD requirements:

BYOD in the Junior School

As part of our Junior Secondary Pathway offerings, Elanora State High School is providing students with the opportunity to participate in our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program.

This program has been developed in alignment with the ACARA framework and our vision for school-wide technology use. It will allow students to engage with the curriculum through a laptop of their choosing.

In 2019 all Year seven students at Elanora State High School will be participating in the BYOD program. Other BYOD programs offered in the Junior School are: 

  • Year 8 ACE
  • Year 8 Sports Excellence
  • Year 8 Dance
  • Year 8 BYOD (By application)
  • Year 9 ACE
  • Year 9 Sports Excellence
  • Year 9 BYOD (By application)

Junior students participating in this program will need an appropriate device (see below), they will need to complete the Elanora SHS BYOD Charter, and pay our connection fee.

In 2019, Elanora State High School will operate a total of 17 dedicated BYOD classes in the junior school.

BYOD Purchasing Portals

Whilst the responsibility for purchasing a device for our BYOD programs lies with the parent and student, Elanora State High has gone to lengths to provide purchasing opportunities that provide devices (and attached service) that would best suit our BYOD programs.

Below you can access vendors who already supply devices to Education Queensland schools and are offering arrangements that are similar to what we as a school receive when we purchase. You may wish to use these when purchasing a device for our BYOD program:

Software and BYOD

Microsoft Office 365

All Queensland state school staff and students can now download multiple free copies of the latest Microsoft Office to their personal home computers and mobile devices.

Students and staff will need to use their school email address to sign in. Students who don’t have a school login, school email account and password should contact their school's Managed Internet Service (MIS) administrator or class teacher. The administrator will help students activate their school login.

Microsoft Office 2016 is available for personal devices only, not devices owned by the department or part of a school network. Errors and conflicts will occur if Office 2016 is downloaded on departmental devices, as these devices already have a licenced copy of Microsoft Office.

Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you’re a Queensland state school student or school-based staff member.

For more detailed information on how to download this software see the software links section of this page.

Norton Anti-Virus

In partnership with Norton by Symantec, Education Queensland is providing 12 months subscription to Norton for only $10. This would mean your student’s device is protected with the most current and up-to-date anti-virus software.

For more information see the software links section of this page.​
