2022 Bring Your Own iPad Prep, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3
Dear Parents/ Caregivers,
We would like to formally invite you to participate in the Bring Your Own iPad program for students in Prep, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 for the 2022 academic year.
Our school takes the safety of your child very seriously, and this extends into their interaction with the digital world. To ensure student safety in this area, we have implemented a comprehensive process that we would like your family to be a part of.
Please find the Pacific Paradise State School’s Bring Your Own iPad Charter attached which includes details, expectations and requirements to participate in the program. This is a comprehensive document that outlines the Bring Your Own iPad Program in our school and is important for all participating families to read.
We have developed three digital forms that provide you with the necessary information to provide your child with appropriate and timely access to digital resources.
1. 'Bring Your Own iPad 2022 for Prep, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 students' Digital Form
This form requires you to indicate if your child is or is not going to participate in the Bring Your Own iPad program for 2022. We collect this information so that we can tailor your child’s access utilising either their own device or school devices.
2. '2022 Department of Education Student Annual Acceptable Use of ICT Facilities and Devices' Digital Form
This form is emailed individually to the parents/caregivers of each enrolled child from Technical Officer Rachael Dalton firstname.lastname@example.org
This form is required to be filled in annually for each enrolled student at Pacific Paradise
3. Website and App Permission Form 2022
This form is emailed individually to the parents/caregivers of each enrolled child from Deputy Principal Jo Beck email@example.com
This form is individualised to each student so access is only available by the email invitation.
This form provides families with a detailed list of all the websites and apps that teachers have indicated they would like to utilise in the classroom to enhance and innovate student learning.
This form then provides you with an opportunity to give consent or not give consent for your child to access each of these.
As a precaution students accounts are locked until the school has received the two forms listed above completed by parents/caregivers. This ensures that the permissions given by parent/caregivers are thoroughly reviewed to ensure students are only given access to the websites and apps their parents/ caregivers have given permission for. Once these permission forms are reviewed students accounts can be unlocked and you child has access to digital learning resources to innovate and enhance their learning journey while at Pacific Paradise State School. The sooner this process is completed the sooner students can join us on this fantastic opportunity.
Thank you for taking the time to engage with this process and for supporting your child’s learning journey with digital technologies.
