DIGITAL DEVICES & CITIZENSHIP
Wairarapa Cobham Intermediate uses digital technology to empower our students to become lifelong digital citizens.
We implement several initiatives, including Digitial Citizenship lessons and assessment, N4L, Netsafe and Apple Classroom to improve online student safety and Education Perfect and Google Workspace for Education to monitor and facilitate digital-based education.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is highly encouraged. A personal device enables flexibility, consistent access, and added security. While any type of device is beneficial, Cobham recommends an iPad of any size capable of running the current iOS and coping with updates.
Although the school will provide a limited number of devices for use in the classroom, it is worth considering the numerous benefits of a personal device.
