Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
All Secondary 1 and JC 1 students joining SJI from 2013 will be part of the "Bring Your Own Device" programme (BYOD@SJI Programme), where students will bring and utilise their personal computing device for learning. This follows a pilot programme for selected classes in the past two years. For the other levels, teachers may require their students to bring a computing device for specific lessons. In the latter case, if a computing device is required, then those students who do not own a computing device could use the school computing device for the lesson.
The enhanced use of technology in learning aims to create a rich, stimulating and interactive learning environment beyond the traditional classroom, and in the process develop the students' capacity to be self-directed and to engage in collaborative learning, as well as to help them to acquire necessary 21st century skills and dispositions to prepare them for the future.
How Will BYOD@SJI Help My Child?
The use of technology has permeated almost every sphere in our society.The BYOD@SJI Programme will help to prepare our students for a high-tech globalized world as well as provide opportunities to learn how to handle computing devices in a productive and responsible manner.
Implementation Details for BYOD@SJI
Students will be required to own a computing device which they will use for their learning. These computing devices must meet a minimum requirements(refer to FAQ)
For the purpose of learning, there is no need for a student to bring a high end computing device to school. An entry level computing device that is light and meet the minimum requirements stated above would suffice.
Students joining SJI in 2017 will only start using their computing devices from semester 2. More details will be provided during the orientation briefing for parents.
