Cobram Secondary College has a BYOD (Bring your own device) program.
The College is taking a further step towards integrating technology into the curriculum by allowing students in years 7-12 to bring a personal device to class, use in private study sessions and take home to follow up on classwork. This will provide students the opportunity to become familiar with and develop ICT literate skills on an individual and personalised basis on a device they feel comfortable with. This will further provide students the opportunity to develop essential skills needed for their participation in a connected, ethical and globalised society.
As part of the program, students at Cobram Secondary College gain access to a range of software and productivity tools free of charge. These include;
Office 365 - including installation of the Microsoft Office suite of Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Access and OneNote
Google Apps in Education - personalised email with up to 5GB of cloud storage.
Adobe Design and Web Collection - including powerful graphics software such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Acrobat Pro
