Heard about BYOD? Bring your own device for education

Many Australian schools have embraced a parent-supplied Student Device Strategy. Bring your own device policies encourage students to leverage technology for their education. In order for students to get the most out of this initiative, it is imperative that you choose the right device for your child. Faced with a huge range of tablets, laptops, notebooks, UltrabooksTM and 2-in-1 devices to choose from, parents can find the prospect of selecting a device to enhance their child's education a bewildering task to say the least.
