Mount Carmel Catholic College is committed to helping students develop up to date technology and communication skills, and as such we integrate technology into all learning and teaching areas to enhance learning experiences and outcomes, preparing students for their role in the digital world in which we live. The College Bring Your Own Designated Device (BYODD) program stipulates the need for students to bring a device to school that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements provided by the the College (below). Whilst there is some choice and flexibility with the device, we have made the decision to place limitations of the type and specification of these devices to guarantee that we are able to effectively maintain and manage these devices at school, place safeguards on equity and commonality amongst students, and ensure that teachers are able to plan lessons and learning experiences based on the knowledge and confidence that all students will be able to access materials applicable to their chosen area of study.
