At New Farm State School, eLearning is used to support new ways of collaborating and communicating. We aim to empower both students and teachers to transform teaching and learning, and prepare our students to be creative and critical thinkers within a local and global community. Through eLearning we aim to utilise authentic learning challenges with practical opportunities to foster curiosity, confidence, persistence, innovation, respect and cooperation.
In 2021, Year 4 and 5 students will be involved in the BYO program. All students in these year levels will be given the opportunity to voluntarily bring along an iPad to support and enable their learning. Teachers in other year levels may allow personal devices as a form of differentiation, depending on need.
The only device allowed in our New Farm State School’s BYO program is the iPad.

Security and Insurance
While the BYO iPads will be securely stored during break times, parents are encouraged to seek personal insurance.
