Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) at 7-12 Campus

 

At the 7-12 Campus all students are required to have their own BYOD laptop.

We have a strong focus on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacies that will enable students to be successful global citizens in the 21st century. EFS have implemented the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) system to meet the increasing demand of ICT in the classroom as we believe that it is a sustainable way to allow students to have one-to-one access to technology.

 

We recommend you purchase your device through our online portal -

LWT BYOD Purchasing Portal - https://efs.orderportal.com.au/Welcome?ofid=1542&eid=62073

 

The benefits of purchasing your device through the portal are;

  • We have done the research and simplified the process for you – we have selected three machines (in varying price brackets) which meet the recommended specifications required for student learning
  • Our service provider LWT, provide onsite service for any warranty repairs, which results in less downtime for students with onsite repairs taking place at school.

We have seen the benefits to this on a daily basis. When a device requires repairs or maintenance, returning them to stores can be a very time-consuming exercise and means at times students may be left without a device to use for some time (can be up to 8 weeks)

  • There are a number of warranty/insurance options available during the purchasing process, along with laptop cases and other peripheral devices
  • There are two options for payment, ‘Buy Now’ or ‘Buy with Finance’

 

Our aim of the portal is to make the purchasing process and maintenance to your device simpler and more cost effective for you, both in the short and long term.

 

Once you have purchased your device please contact our ICT Department to make arrangements for the setup and configuration, ready for school use.
