Pacific Paradise State School highly values the engaging and rich learning experiences that effective technology integration can bring. The promotion and advancement of Bring Your Own Laptop aligns with world wide educational trends to ensure today’s learners are more adept at communication, creating, collaborating and critically thinking in a technology driven world.

Access to technology through a Bring Your Own Laptop program has changed how we communicate, think and process information.

* Crossing educational divides


In 2020 students in Year 4, 5 and 6 are invited to bring a laptop.


We have surveyed some students who have participated in the Bring Your Own Laptop program in 2018 and  2019. The results overwhelmingly indicated the students were more engaged, felt more eager to self-direct and motivate, more independent and enjoyed the seamless learning from school to home.
