Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Warwick School has been successfully implementing a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programme since September 2021. The programme enables the effective integration of the latest technology into classrooms to enhance the pupils’ learning experience and achievement, from the beginning of Year 8.
In Year 10 Physics, pupils are tasked with measuring a car’s acceleration using real-time data analysis from a moving car that is connected to their own laptops via Bluetooth. The pupils can utilise their knowledge of Velocity-Time graphs to calculate the car’s acceleration as a function of the force applied to it. From this, they can plot a suitable graph in Excel that verifies Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion.
This hands-on approach using state-of-the-art technology is typical of the Physics explored at Warwick School and is a great example of BYOD in action.
We know that parents may need to purchase a device for this initiative, perhaps choosing to upgrade a current device, or buying one for the first time for their children.
Buying from a Recommended Supplier
With the technology developing at a rapid rate and prices rising in the current global climate of COVID-19, we want to be able to offer our families a competitively priced, robust device that allows pupils to work effectively using the key IT systems over the coming years. Our current partner supplier is L.E.A.D. IT Services.
Please view our dedicated Foundation BYOD Purchasing Portal for all the information you need regarding purchasing a device through L.E.A.D. IT Services.
Those parents who have, in the past, purchased an HP device through System Active will still continue to receive the same level of support that they would have done previously, including those who have purchased 3 year warranty care packages. If you have any queries regarding your purchase with System Active, please contact the relevant person below:
