Preparing for BYOD @ Carey in 2018

William Carey’s BYOD for Learning Program starts in 2018 for years 5, 7 and 11. By 2020 all students from Years 5 to 12 will be required to bring a digital device to school for learning in the classroom.

Setup

For students to be able to use their devices day one at school, the student will require to take some actions at home before bringing the device to school.

The student’s device will need to be registered so it can access the network. This is called on-boarding your device. This step must be done at home from an existing internet connection. Students require their school username and password to complete this process.

Please see the following link for some video instructions from Mr Hall/Mr Snelson on how to join the new wireless network.
