Danebank BYOD Program

At Danebank we continually assess and research new technologies and evaluate their application for our girls. Our Bring Your Own (BYO) iPad program has been a great success and the iPad was the obvious device choice when the program started in 2012. Since then there have been many developments in both hardware and software that require a re-appraisal of the most effective way to serve your daughter’s ongoing technological needs.

You can use our preferred supplier’s online purchasing portal to assist you in purchasing a new device. This will make it easy to make your selection along with any optional accessories and insurance. We have negotiated special education pricing on this portal on your behalf, however you are always welcome to shop elsewhere if you prefer, provided your device meets the minimum requirements.

N.b. An iPad is no longer sufficient to meet the technological requirements for student’s learning and students will not be able to use this as a primary device.

Minimum Device Requirements:

  • Weigh less than 2kg
  • Battery life sufficient to last a school day
  • Screen size between 11” and 15”
  • i5 processor or equivalent
  • 4GB RAM (8GB recommended)
  • 128GB SSD storage (256GB recommended)
  • Windows 7 and above, or Mac OS X 10.10 and above

School Applications:

The school will provide students with the following software to meet their core educational needs, which can be accessed via these links:

               

               

We hope that this approach will help your daughters to become adaptive and innovative users of technology and develop key skills for the future.
