BYO iPad Program Requirements

 

Bring Your Own iPad Program

 

Albany Creek State High School introduced a Bring Your Own iPad Program at the beginning of 2015.

The initiative provides an opportunity for all Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students to be immersed in a technology rich teaching and learning environment. The program is striving to be affordable for all parents while at the same time enhancing ICT learning opportunities for all students.
 

As part of the implementation of the BYO iPad Program we have prepared a number of "How To" documents to assist parents and students to set up their devices.

Important Steps

 

To assist you to prepare your iPad for use in the Albany Creek SHS BYO iPad Program for Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 there are a number of important steps to follow:


Step 1, Purchase a suitable iPad (if you do not already own one).

Step 2, If you do not already have an iTunes account you will need to set one up.  The cost of the extra apps has been contained to $40 per year. Parents are advised to buy two x $20 iTunes cards to purchase apps listed on the Albany Creek State High School Apps List.We recommend that you wait until your child starts school before downloading the Apps.

Step 3, Set up your iPad to join the Albany Creek SHS network environment. A "How To" document has been prepared to assist you with this step.
