Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)​
At Woodridge State High School - we believe that Information Communication and Technology supports teaching and learning as a tool in collaboration, communication, creativity, innovation and critical thinking allowing our team to provide authentic learning experiences and opportunities to all students.

Information Technology devices are a powerful means of differentiating and personalising a student’s education, and student-owned devices allows student choice regarding which applications best suits their learning and communication style. We are giving families control over the choice of the BYOD laptop that students use at school.
