BYOD iPad Program


In line with the Western Australian Curriculum, it is expected that students will “learn to use
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) effectively and appropriately to access,
create, and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all
learning areas at school and in their lives beyond school. Making the most of the digital
technologies available to them…”


At Edgewater Primary School we are committed to the use of highly effective evidence-based
teaching and learning strategies to ensure that our students are provided with learning
experiences that are both stimulating and innovative. With this in mind, ICT in our school has
been carefully planned and coordinated to ensure that the needs of both current and future
students are met.

The iPad Program aims to engage students and enable them to develop the skills to become 21st Century learners.

It is our next step towards individualised learning, which will increase independence and encourage higher order thinking in students, enabling them to develop the skills to think critically, problem solve, be creative and extend their learning beyond the classroom.

Students in Year 4, 2022, will be given the opportunity to bring their own device to school to
enhance the teaching and learning program.


The iPad Program will be rolled out over three years and by 2024 students in Years 4-6

will be part of the program.
