BYO iPad Program 2019 – Update

As you would be aware Craigburn Primary School launched a voluntary BYO iPad program for students in Years 2 – 7 in early 2016. Throughout the program we have experienced many successes whilst also finding some challenges along the way.

There are currently over 250 students (Years 2-7) who have taken up the program and whose families have participated in parent information / induction sessions.

We are currently updating our BYO iPad Program for 2019 and are continuing to the implement the program across Years 2 – 7.

To participate in this program we ask all families to participate in a parent induction session at school.

Parent induction sessions will be communicated through the school news blog in the coming days.

Please note:

  • At least one parent / carer is required to attend. It is not essential that two parents attend.
  • Only one induction session needs to be attended by parents if more than one child is participating in the program.
  • Students are not required to attend the induction session.
  • Further induction sessions will be available on a needs basis. Please contact the school if these dates are unsuitable to arrange an alternative time.

At the Induction session, parents will be introduced to, and stepped through a ‘BYO iPad Program iTunes U Course’ – designed to provide both the parent/s and the child with immediate and easy access to the following information and resources:

  • Setting up the iPad ready for school
  • School, Parent and Student Expectations – including acceptable use agreement
  • A required core Apps List
  • Maintenance and Care
  • Digital Citizenship and Cybersafety
  • iPad Tips and Tricks
  • Troubleshooting
