In response to the end of Federal Government funding of the Laptops for Learning Program, the DoE is adopting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. The Henry Lawson High School has implemented a policy that allows students the option to bring a suitable portable device (laptop or convertible laptop) to school for the purpose of learning and engagement.
It is important that laptops brought by students are suitable for use at school.
The DoE has given students access to Google's suite of Applications for Education, Microsoft Office 365 and some Adobe software free of charge. This gives all students secure access to powerful productivity tools and a collaborative learning environment at no cost. The software applications can be accessed through the student's portal.
