Year 7 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program.
Parent Meeting 21 June 2017 starting 6PM
Marsden High school is transitioning into a BYOD school in 2017, with Year 7 being the first cohort for the program. The teachers at Marsden High School have created cutting edge digital learning experiences for our Year 7 students. To be able to access these activities in term 3 2017, every student in Year 7 will need to purchase a Chromebook laptop in the coming weeks.
As a school, we believe that Chromebooks are great value for money. Chromebooks will provide our students with an affordable device that quickly and easily connects them to Marsden High School's network. Chromebooks are designed to work with Google GSuite and Google Drive, making collaboration, backup and file sharing easy to manage. They are lightweight and will not take up much room in a student's bag. Their battery is long lasting for a full school day.
There are 4 Chromebooks on offer including the touch screen model. To buy a Chromebook, students can visit HP Student Portal for further details, including a discount for our school. www.hpshopping.com.au/marsdenbyod.
Delivery and purchase:
You may get devices delivered to the school address 22a Winbourne Street, West Ryde 2114. Using this option will allow Mr John Evans (Program Coordinator) to configure your child's laptop to connect to the Marsden domain as well as your child's personal Gmail account.
There will be a hands on Chromebook Information session for Year 7 Parent Wednesday 21 June 2017 in the School Library starting at 6 PM, (Please note the change of date for this meeting from the 24 May to 21 June 2017) Hope to see you there.
If you have any questions or issues with purchasing a Chromebook please contact the school on 9874 6544 and ask for Mr John Evans.
