Bring Your Own Device

 Leeming SHS’s ICT Vision Statement

 

To advance and support the teaching and learning of staff and students at Leeming SHS through the effective application of information communication technologies (ICT).

 

At Leeming SHS, we envisage using technology to further a learning community where:

 

The school becomes an environment where all students and staff have ready access to a full range of current technology, software tools, and applications. The school has knowledgeable staff and external resources (such as parents, community members, business, higher education, and network resources) to further the curriculum goals.

 

Students utilizing this opportunity to its fullest capacity within school expectations will find numerous benefits to instruction, resources, completion of assignments and personal organization.  Leeming SHS encourages all students to participate in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scheme
