The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program allows students at Cherrybrook Technology High School to bring their own laptop or tablet from home to use at school. To ensure that the chosen device works in the school environment please download and read the Device Specifications document below. To participate in the program please download the User Charter and Policy and return the signed first page of the document to the school.
Free Software Downloads for BYOD
The Department of Education has enterprise agreements which allow the download and installation of particular software, to support Bring Your Own Device initiatives.
The DoE’s enterprise agreement with Adobe allows students to download and install Adobe Creative Cloud (and some other software) for free on one personally owned device.
The enterprise agreement with Microsoft allows students to download the full suite of Microsoft Office applications for use on their personal BYOD devices. These complete applications complement the provision of access to Microsoft Office 365 or “Office in the Cloud” now available. The Office 365 software and associated mobile apps can be used on a limited number of devices owned or used by students of the DEC at no charge.
P&C BYOD Purchasing
In conjunction with the P&C, some special deals on laptops and tablets have been organised for Cherrybrook students. Please go to the P&C BYOD Purchasing page for more information. Although you may purchase a device from any outlet or store, it may be to your advantage to explore these options.
