Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one strategy towards flexible learning environments that we recognise maximises learning potential. We want to give Kurnai College students the chance to use their portable technology at school as a learning tool. The device needs to be treated as the main form of resource material for our students. For more detailed information on minimum requirements including iOS info please view the College's ICT Policy
MINIMUM TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS REQUIRED:

It is also highly reccomended that any students bringing in a Windows 10 device ensure that it is not a " Windows 10 S " Operating System as this has limited functionaly and the inabilty to install the College's provided Office365 suite and Wireless verification certificates.
