Melville SHS supports the philosophy of using ICT based pedagogy and approved technologies to support the teaching and learning program in the school.
Melville SHS allows staff, students and parents to access the school network to use online services for educational purposes with school owned resources and approved personally owned devices. GDM students are required to bring MacBook and will be advised separately.
The approved personally owned student digital device must:
- Be an up-to-date iPad or MacBook
- Be able to receive IOS or MacOS updates to maintain its security status
- Have a strong protective case with a keyboard
An iTunes account is required to access the App store to install recommended Apps. It is recommended that the iPad be insured and have AppleCare.
A list of the current recommended models is available through the link to Winthrop Australia. However, the iPad/MacBook can be purchased from the supplier of your choice.
Mobile phones are not approved devices and students should not connect mobile phones to the school Wi-Fi at any time.
