Bring Your Own Device Pilot

Thank­ you to everyone who came along to our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Pilot information sessions on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th November. 

If you missed these sessions you can watch it below. 

As a reminder, from January 2015, as a pilot in West Base and West Base 2 at Osprey Quay Campus, we would like to offer children the opportunity to ‘BYOD’. Please be reassured that the ICT equipment we currently have across West Base and West 2 will stay within the bases for children to use, regardless of whether they choose to bring in a device or not. To this end, there is no pressure for pupils to take part in this pilot, however, the opportunity exists for those that are interested in exploring this idea further.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to finalise arrangements for an ‘IPACA Device Portal’, this now looks like something that will be available in the New Year. However, here are a number of other ‘suggestions’ of devices currently on the market as requested by parents.

These suggestions are only intended as a guide and as previously stated pupils who wish to take part in the pilot can bring in any device with a web browser for this pilot, old or new.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Gary Spracklen (Director of Digital Learning and Innovation, IPACA)
