The evolving technological world over the last decade has changed teaching practices and learning opportunities significantly.
We aim for our students to develop essential digital literacy skills during their time at Chevalier College, which will assist them to be connected safely and purposefully in the digital learning world.
We are committed to providing an environment that ensures:
Our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program requires that all students bring a device to school for their daily learning needs.
Years 7 to 10 require an iPad for their daily learning needs. This is to ensure that all students have access to software with the same capabilities in the classroom.
Years 11 and 12 are responsible for maintaining and bringing their own device to school and for the choice of the technology platform which best suits their requirements.
Whilst student devices are connected to the Chevalier Network, internet access is both filtered and logged using School Manager by Family Zone.
