BYOC AT WIS

At Windhoek International School as of August 2022 the school's current BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy for students and staff is changing to BYOC (Bring Your Own Chromebook).

 

WIS will only allow students to use Chromebooks as their daily driver. No other platform/device will be allowed from August 2022 onwards.

 

Below is an excerpt from the recently updated WIS ICT POLICY:

"3. Connectivity: Devices: Classroom iPads will be provided to students from Grade 1 to Grade 3. In order to provide a seamless, fluent learning experience, deepened classroom connections and foster meaningful learning, as of August 2022 WIS only supports Chromebooks as BYOC (Bring Your Own Chromebook) for staff and students from Grade 4 to Grade 12. Staff will be issued a Chromebook as their daily driver, if not making use of the BYOC system. The replacement cycle for Chromebooks is 5 - 8 years."
