Bringing technology into the classroom
At Darwin High students are encouraged to bring a suitable portable device (laptop or tablet) to school.
The BYOD program is optional, and the school maintains a level of service to allow students to access technology throughout the day. However, students who have participated in the BYOD program have expressed they felt they had a considerable advantage by having access to their own device both at school and at home.
Our IT Services Helpdesk will assist with network setup and installation of the following software with the BYOD program:
