Ashdale Secondary College is committed to maximising the use of current and emerging technologies within our classrooms, providing positive learning educational experiences and preparing students for the future.

To enhance access to technology across the school we have implemented a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) program for all year levels (Year 7–12). A BYOD program provides students with the option of bringing their school approved device (e.g. laptop, tablet, iPad etc.) to school each day to assist with their learning. Access to a BYOD at Ashdale SC replicates the technology rich environment already common in higher education and business and allows students to continue learning anytime, anywhere.

For families who do not own a device that meets the minimum requirements specified and are wishing to participate in the BYOD Program, Winthrop Australia (Ashdale SC’s education technology partner) is offering a wide range of Apple and Windows devices in low price ‘bundles’. These bundles are now available to purchase through the Winthrop ordering portal and includes free home delivery in approximately two weeks.

Ordering portal details and information about purchasing from Winthrop Australia:

Laptop Devices:   https://portal.winaust.com.au/a/ashdale-secondary-laptops

iPad Devices:       https://portal.winaust.com.au/a/ashdale-secondary-ipads

One of the advantages of selecting an arrangement with Winthrop Australia is that a technician on the College site deals with warranty claims. Price comparisons have been conducted and due to Winthrop’s Education pricing arrangement, retail outlets have been unable to match pricing.

Many students currently attending Ashdale Cluster primary schools are already using purchased MacBooks and will be able to continue using these devices when they attend the College in 2017.

If you any queries regarding the BYOD program, please call 9302 7100 or email ashdale.sc@education.wa.edu.au.
