WEGC BYOD Device Guide
At Wellington East Girls' College students in Year 9 bring a digital device to school.
Students at other levels may bring a device to school to assist their learning.
Students can use their devices throughout the day for collaborative learning, web-based
research and applications, including creating documents and presentations.
To ensure the device is functional and appropriate for learning, at a minimum, it should have:
 a screen size of at least 9 inches (23cm)
 a solid, off-screen keyboard that can comfortably be typed on
 a fully-functional Web browser that works well with Google Apps
 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi capability
 at least 4 hours battery life
While this excludes smart phones and many popular mini tablets, there is a wide range of
device types that should accommodate preference and budget.
Note that senior students may require more sophisticated hardware and software.
