BYOx and Student Laptop Scheme


At Stanthorpe State High School we have been running a very successful
Take-home Laptop scheme for students in years 10, 11 and 12.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOx) is the new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st Century learning in schools. BYOx is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students use their privately owned devices to access the school network and information systems in an educational setting.
