Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

BY​OD is not new at Caboolture CSHS. Since 2002, students have ‘brought their own device’ as part of the school’s LearnIT program.   

As of 2017, the P&C of Caboolture SHS has supported schoolwide implementation of a BYOD program.  

To participate in the program, student-owned laptops will need to meet minimum specifications. These are determined by the school as those required for a device to satisfactorily operate on our network and run the designated software. It is important that families read this information carefully before choosing a device for use in BYOD@CSHS.   

The Benefits of BYOD Learning:

  •  BYOD encourages independent learners as students have all the necessary tools and resources at home or at school. No “I left it at home (or school)”!
  • BYOD learning offers relevant ways to support student learning that can be transferred to the workplace, including respectful, appropriate use of mobile devices
  • BYOD learning is more portable, personal, collaborative, interactive, differentiated and contextual
  • BYOD learning creates a stronger connection between school and home
  •  BYOD learners are often more engaged with their learning 

BYOD students have a choice of three levels of participation:

  1. LearnIT
  2. BYOD 1 Supported choice - onsite service and support
  3. BYOD 2 Own choice - self-managed 


Bringing to school and connecting to our network a privately-owned device comes with a range of roles and responsibilities.  In addition to providing a device that meets minimum specifications, students participating in BYOD@CSHS will be expected to comply with the program’s Participation Agreement. 
Enquiries about our BYOD options are welcome at:
