BYOD @ Kurnai

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one strategy towards flexible learning environments that we recognise maximises learning potential. We want to give Kurnai College students the chance to use their portable technology at school as a learning tool. The device needs to be treated as the main form of resource material for our students.
